Let me start off by saying I am using Access 2000 and am not a programmer;-) having said that: I have two tables: Mediator and Mediation information. The Mediator table has Mediator_Name, Mediator_Phone, and Mediator_Address. The Mediation table has Mediator_Name, Mediation_Location, and Mediation_Time. I am using a combo box to list the mediator names and have the work phone numbers as column 2. What I am trying to do is have a text box show the phone number for the mediator chosen from the the combo box. I've tried putting this in the AfterUpdate in the text box and get a #Name! error: Me!Mediator_Phone = Me![Mediator_Name].Column(2) I'm sure the fix is very simple..please help!
