    Hi, I open a form and i have a combo box at the top of my form. What i
    wish to happen is, when i select a manufacturer form the drop down list
    from this combo box, i want the manufacturers corresponding details to
    appear in the other control boxes on the same form.

    Could you tell me what way i can go about doing this please. Ie what
    code or criteria or query i should use.

    Any help would be appreciated...

    Add an unbound combo box to the form header using the combo wizard.
    Select the 3rd option on the first set of questions, something like
    "Find a record ...etc."
    The wizard will write the code for you.
    When completed, select the manufacturer from the combo box and those
    records will appear on the form.

    The easiest way for you to fix this problem would be to just delete and
    re-create the combo-box using the wizrd in the forms design mode. As you
    progress through the wizard be sure to choose "select a related record" when
    offered choices as to the function of the combo-box.

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!
