    I have a form that is using combo box selections to create a query for
    a large table. I need to use two items from the 1st combo box to
    create the query, but can only figure out how to use one. "Name" is
    used to display a station name to the user, while "MaintSched "is used
    as an afterupdate for the next combo box. I use "Me.txtStation" (shown
    below) to include the correct "MaintSched" value in the next query.
    How could I save "StationID" as a variable for use in a later query?

    SELECT tblSystem.StationID, tblSystem.MaintSched, tblSystem.Name
    FROM tblSystem;

    Me.txtSubsystem.RowSource = _
    " SELECT ID, SubSystem, MaintSchedule" & _
    " FROM tblSubsystems" & _
    " WHERE MaintSchedule = " & Me.txtStation & _
    " ORDER BY SubSystem"

    You must use a ListBox setup for multiselect, not a ComboBox.

    I'm actually trying to grab two values from the same selection. The
    selection I am making has 3 fields [stationID,MaintSched,Name]. I want
    to save both the stationID and MaintSched fields for later use.
    Currently I can only store one value as the 'Me' value in my combo box
    titled txtStation (Me.txtStation).

    Thank you for your help,

    Michael

    Hi.

    If I understand correctly, you have a multicolumn ComboBox named txtStation,
    and want to retrieve values from two different columns for one selection.

    If this is the case, replace Me.txtStation with Me.txtStation.Column(x)
    where x is the number of the ComboBox column containing the data you want to
    retrieve, starting with 0 as the first column.

    So, if the columns appear in the order you listed them (stationID,
    MaintSched, Name), your WHERE line might look something like this (air code,
    and watch for line wrap):
    " WHERE MaintSchedule = " & Me.txtStation.Column(1) & " AND stationID = " &
    Me.txtStation.Column(0) & _

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!
