    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.
