    In one table, words such as cafe and decor are entered with no accent on the
    e, but when using a combo box to look up this field, when you type the word
    cafe it automatically changes it to an e with an accent or acute then a
    message box will inform you the item is not in the list. Any ideas how to
    stop this would be appreciated?

    Cafe and Decor are both Auto Correct words ... Tools +
    AutoCorrectOptions.
    You can either delete the reference to cafe and decor in the
    AutoCorrect list (which will effect AutoCorrect for all Office
    programs), or set the control's (on the form) Allow AutoCorrect to No
    (which only effects that particular control).

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!
