    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.

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!
