    I have a combobox on my form which contains aluelist of yes no. When i start
    entering data on my form this combox will automatically have no in it. I
    don't want that, what I want is it to be empty so that a user can have a
    choice of selecting yes or No.

    Check the default property of the control on the form and if not set to zero
    then check the default of the field in the table.

    My mistake, I was thinking Checkbox, not Combobox.

    What is the record source for the combobox - table/query OR internal list?
    Just add a blank record to the source.

    Will you allow the user to not select either Yes or No? If they must select
    (set validation in the table properties) it would be better to have it
    defaulting to the most often chosen item.
