    I have a combo box in a form and I want it to have a default Value. But when
    I type in the default value it doesn't apply to my form. My default value is
    in the combo box so but it just won't stay in the form. Can someone please
    help me fix this.
    Thanks in advance.

    Tdahlman,
    What do you mean by...
    > I type in the default value it doesn't apply to my form.


    Where are you typing in the default value? In the ComboBox?
    You should use the DefaultValue Property of the combo.
    = "SomeDefaultValue"

    I go into the properties of the combo box and I go down to Default Value. I
    type in what I want it to be and it won't work.

    Tdahlman,
    What exactly are you typing in there?
    You do realize that the DefaultValue for a field is only in effect on New records?
    After a record has been created the DefaultValue has no effect.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
