    I'm designing a data access page for inventory of I.T. equipment, I would
    like a dropdown box on the form that when users select a value other fields
    are hidden or displayed dependant on what value was selected.

    e.g. if they select type from dropdown being PC, I'd like Memory, Hard drive
    size fields to be displayed and others to be hidden.

    Is it possible to script this within data access pages i.e. to hide and
    display fields at runtime dependant on value selected within dropdown box ?

    Thanks

    You might try using the combo box AfterUpdate event to run script that
    changes the Hidden property of those other elements.

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!
