Full Version: Odd Dropdown Box Question
UtterAccess Forums > Microsoft® Access > Access Forms
So what I want is a Form with a drop down box and a text box. When the user selects the item from the dropdown box and clicks the button it populates the text box somewhat.
That I want to display in the text box is skeleton code and when the user selects the element from the dropdown box it fills in the rest of the code.
So I would have:
SELECT [BLANK], daily_compare.CARD, daily_compare.BLD_CARD, [BLANK], daily_compare.pct_chg
FROM daily_compare;
The blanks would be filled in by the dropdown box.
I hope I am explaining correctly.

Assuming you want the [BLANK] filled in both times with the value from the drop-box, you would have code like this:
e.textbox = "SELECT [" & Me.cboBoxName & "], daily_compare.CARD, daily_compare.BLD_CARD, [" & Me.cboBoxName & "], daily_compare.pct_chg FROM daily_compare;"

you want your SQL string to be displayed in the textbox?
But this in the control source for your textbox: (no need for a button to populate the textbox, it will automatically update when the combo box is filled in)
="SELECT " & nz([combo0],"") & ", daily_compare.CARD, daily_compare.BLD_CARD, " & nz([combo0],"") & " , daily_compare.pct_chg" & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & "FROM daily_compare;"
Thanks appreciate both your help on this
