    I want to have either a listbox or combo box to display allowable values
    based on a query.

    But i want the value to be shown in a separate text box, so that the user
    can instead of scrolling the whole listbox, type all (or the first couple of
    digits) into the text box and it will move the listbox (or filter it) to the
    values that start with those digits. Then when they can select the value
    from the listbox and have it store in the text box to be used to run a
    report, or finish typing it themselves. can this be done?

    Please explain better... i only understand to put any value from combo to
    another text field (Use AfterUpdate event to do this)
