    Is there a way that you can auto populate a text box when you choose
    something in a drop down box?

    There's a couple of ways.

    One is to use the AfterUpdate event of the combo to set the value of the
    text box. To see an example, open the Northwind sample database, the Orders
    Subform, and look at the ProductID combo. Its AfterUpdate looks up the
    current price of the product, and drops it into the text box for price.

    The other way is to just use the text box to show what is in one of the
    other columns of the combo's RowSource. For example, if the value you want
    is in column 2 of the combo, you would set the Control Source of your text
    box to:

    (Note that the first column is zero, the 2nd is 1, and so on.)
