How to copy information from one form to another form

    I have two forms and want to copy information from some fields in one form to
    some fields in the other form. I have set up a command button in the first
    form; the user clicks it and it copies information from the first form, opens
    the second form, and pastes append. However, the information isn't being
    pasted into all of the fields in the second form (I have made sure that the
    field names in each form/table are the same). For these fields that aren't
    working, each is bound to a drop down box in the second form, something like

    Control Source = Combo12.Column(6).

    When I delete this control source, the information is pasted into the field
    beautifully. However, I need the control source to populate the field
    automatically for other, more common, uses (for example, the user selects a
    client from the drop down box and their personal information is displayed
    automatically). Any ideas how to keep the control source as is, but make the
    paste append work, would be great.

    I'm using MS Access 2003 on Windows XP.

    I hope this is clear; if not, I can try to clarify. Thanks,

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!
