I use a button to select a few things on a form. Although the correct record is highlighted in the list box, I still need to select it before I can input a record. even if I set focus to the list box. is there something else I could try?

Me.lst0.Selected(11) = True
Me.Combo17.Value = 14
Me.lst0.SetFocus


Enable users to find a record by selecting a value from a list
When you design a form in Access, you can create a list box (list box: A control that provides a list of choices. A list box consists of a list and an optional label.) or a combo box (combo box: A control used on a form that provides the combined functionality of a list box and a text box. You can type a value in a combo box, or you can click the control to display a list and then select an item from that list.) that can be used to find a record when a value is selected from the list. This makes it easier for users to quickly find existing records without having to type a value into the Find dialog box.


Save Record in Form.
I've been searching but could not find a way to solve this.
I have a Form with List box that list the items and several text boxes that display info of the selected items in that list box.

So I use the Dlookup in the list box so that the text boxes will auto update the info regard to the selected item in the list box.

My issues is I want to change the info in those text boxes and auto save the record.
I tried many ways but didnt work.
I tried to use Macro SaveRecord for Save button, after update, after change focus
Tried If Me.Dirty Then Me.Dirty = False
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord

Please help to advise where did I do wrong? My guess is that because of the Dlookup that prevent the save but if I dont use the Dlookup then what should I use

Multiple Selection wth List Box / Combo Box
I have a form with a Combobox in Access 2010. It is bound to a table and has ten items in the list. These are the list of different departments which when I select, gives me the Report of that dept.

I would like to select multiple items from the list, so that I can combine those dept reports whenever necessary.

Is it possible to select multiple values from a combo box or list box? I was searching for the Allow multiple value select property in the Property sheet, but couldn't find.

Autopopulating Values
In a form I created, I need two text fields to auto populate their values based on a selection from a dropdown list. The dropdown list has a series of names that are drawn from a different table.

I'll call that table the "Name" table for this post. The "Name" table has three fields in it, the name of the rep (these names are the list in the dropdown field), their ID numberand who their manager is.

back to my form. When I select a rep name in the dropdown list, I want the ID text box and the Manager text box to fill based on the name I select. In other words, if I select "Mike", I want Mike's ID and Manager to auto populate on the form.

There are other fields to complete but these I need to fill in automatically. I've read about the "On Change" procedure but I don't know how to do it.


New record with combo box?
I have a form with a combo box to choose the main indexed field. it auto populates the rest of the fields when you select one choice. If I press "new record" it blanks all the txt boxes (good) but I can't type a new entry in the main combo box (bc its not part of the list).

I'm thinking I need to make a button that says "add" and it brings up a dialog form with a txt box instead to add the new entry in the main record, then once the new indexed entry is there it can bring up the form with all the other fields and let you enter the info for them also. Also how can I make a txt box that brings up the new record only?


Pass Multiple List Box Values into a Query
I have a list box with 5 separate facilities. I want to give the user the option to select just 1 or multiple facilities. The list box is on a form. There is a button on the form thatopens a report that is tied to a query that takes the value from the list box.

[Forms]![frm_CMNReports_SecondEyes]![lstFacilities]

If I keep the list box properties set to multi select none the value gets passed to the query no problem. If I switch the multi select property to Simple or Extended the report will justopen with no data like it couldn't get any value passed to it.


Problem updating a table from a multi-select list box
I am trying to make a simple database where the data entered in a form will update to a table. My issue is, one of the fields is manufacturing location where I would like the user to be able to enter multiple locations and then have those locations update the table where the record is stored.

I've been able to set up a list box with multi-select but am stuck at getting the table to update with the choices made from the list box selection.


Hold value in combo box and list box after record entered
I'm developing a form for data entry. I'm using a combo box to select a Task from a table and a cascaded list box to select the Elements from a query based on the selected Task. I have a text box to enter Standards for the selected Element. When the new record is entered into the Standards table, the TaskID and ElementID are also entered into the Standards Table. This is fine, but every time a new record is entered, I have to reselect the Task and Element to enter the next Standard. As there may be more than one Standard for an element, I want the Task with associated TaskID and the Element with associated ElementID to remain until a new Task or a new Element is selected.

How can I maintain the value in the combo box and list box while entering the Standard record?


Reducing the List items on a combo box after selection
Is there a way to limit the item list in a combo box after you make selection and move to the next record. For example, if the combo box had a list of numbers 1 to 20, once you select 1 then on the next record where you have to use the same combo box to make a selection, you only see 2 to 20 because 1 has already been selected and prevents data entry error (i.e. double entry of the same item). Once the main task is complete, the combo box has to be reset i.e. once you close the main form


select record from combo list box and open the record for edit
I am new in access. I have a DB, where I have created few tables and forms. I have a table name "workflow" and form "workflow". The table has different columns. There is a column "status". In this column I update mainly "Complete" and "Not complete" status. Now I want a combo list box in the form "Workflow" with the drop down showing only "Not completed" iteam display. In addition to this if I select a record from the drop down, it should take me to that particular record and open it for data entry (mofication).

Please suggest how do I create such a combo list box.

Combo Box auto fill and update table
I am new to access and have created a database with multiple tables to record information about specific vendors. Each vendor has an assigned vendor number that I want to follow them to each table.

I created a form associated with the contracts table, it has a combo box which looks a the vendor table and when you select the vendor you want it auto populates the vendor number text box.

Once you have finished filling in the rest of the form and move to the next record it adds everything to the table except the vendor number.

The vendor number text box control source is set to =[cboVendor].[column](2).


List box field value determining the value for another field
I have a form where the first field determines the value of the second field. The first field is a multi select list box and so I was wondering if it is possible to have it so that if a certain item is selected in this list, it will fill in the second box with a number value of 1-5. Here is an example if that was not too clear:

List box
red
purple
green
blue
violet
black
white

purple = 1 blue = 2 violet = 3 .etc

How exactly could I do this, and if the list box is not ideal then would a combo box be better served in this situation?
And just a note: the list box currently contains about 12 catagories, but not all of them will equate to a value for the second value, meaning that the second field is only dependent on some of the values from the list field


Handling Multiple Selections in a List Box
I have a List Box field which should enable the program user to select more than one element at a time from the List Box for a particular record. I have tried so hard to get this to work but it has not worked for me. I consulted Access 2000 Development, Page 343, yet I can't get this thing to work. Please if you have a clue help me out. Try not to throw out the clue just there, rather give me some fundamental steps that will guide me right
