    I'm a novice access programmer. However I know my way in relational
    database design. My question is the following:

    If I want to pick a record from a table (with a multi attribute key) to
    use in another table where those attributes are part of the key of that
    table I want idealy use a combo box which shows the fields of the first
    table (iets key values) en then 1:1 copy those fields in the target
    table. The standard combo box allows me only to select 1 attribute.

    What do I mis here? How can I solve my problem?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi.

    It sounds like you need a ListBox instead. A ComboBox will only let you
    select one item, but in a ListBox (provided the Multi Select property is set
    to Extended) you can select multiple items.

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!
