    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.
