    Hey all,

    I'm having a bit of a problem setting a drop down default. I want it to
    default based on the value spit out by a query (it's a min function query so
    there can only be one value). When I set the default value to the line below,
    it just comes up blank. Anyone know how to do this? Can it be done?

    =[Default Value]![Expr1]

    Thanks in advance!

    Doesn't the combo box rowsource have values?
    What if the query value was not in the drop-down list?

    As DefaultValue for the drop-down control, write:

    =DLookUp("[Expr1]","TheQueryName")

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!
