Look up value from Combo box in Access RRS feed

  • Hi everyone

    I want to use the following in an exisiting combo box in a form. I'm assuming that this is not possible becuase it requires the creation of a new combo box right? The database has 1,000+ records in it which the combo box is linked to...

  • You can do that with an existing combo box, but the Row Source of the combo box should return the fields you need for the text boxes, and the Column Count of the combo box should match the number of columns in the Row Source.
