Binding multiple columns in a combobox

Well, it is a pretty straight forward question. How do I bind each of the three columns in my combo box.

ComboBox not listing multiple columns
I have a combo box based off a query. I want to add a second column to the combobox, so I went and added the field that I want added to the query that the combobox is based on. But when I went to go create a new ComboBox, it is not showing all the fields from the query it is based on! Why is this?


Lookup multiple columns in combo box
Is there a way to lookup information ina bound combo box based on either columns.

Here is a scenario I have a bound combobox with two columns Column(0), and Column(1) both visible. I want to search the combobox based on either value of both columns. In the words if Isearch ID it will lookup the value and if I search by name it will also lookup names.

Is there a sample VB script in the after update event of combo box that will accomplish that?

display whole list of columns that comprise query in combobox
I created a combobox with the wizard. I have a query as the rowsource for the combobox. After I make a selection then it only displays one of the many columns in my query. It's important for me to display the whole list of columns as it is a person's full name


Add a value to a ComboBox where the first column width is 0cm.
I have a combobox with multiple columns. The first column is the bound column but it has a width of 0cm. The second column has a width greater than 0cm and thus is what is seen.

If I give this comboBox a value eg Me.cbo.value = "Text" it does not show up. I assume this is because it is adding it to the first column. But because "Text" is not in the list of items in the combobox there is nothing to show for the second column.

Thus is there a way to add a value directly to the second column which is not in the list of values for the comboBox.


RowSource question
I am using (2) combo boxes. The second is a requery from the first. I am getting "PartNumber" in the second combobox. I have several fields setup in the second combobox.

How do I get multiple fields to come out in the second combobox? Is there a way to add multiple fields to RowSource or do I need to do this differently?


How to use Access Columns Types in .NET
I need to know if there is way to figure out if a particular Column in an Access Table is of type "ComboBox" or "TextBox". For Example:

In Access I'm having a table "XYZ". This has 2 Columns "X" and "Y". In Access, I've assigned the "Display Control" tag (Open any Access Table->Go o to "Design View"-> Go to "Lookup" tab) as "Combobox" for Column "X" and as "TextBox" for Column "Y".

Is there a way that I can query this property in my C# code? i.e.

dc = DataTable.Columns[0];
if (dc.<To Figure Out>.ComboBox


Combobox display order
I have a table with a combobox in it. The records displayed in this combobox are in the same correct order as displayed in the source table. The problem is that when I select multiple values in the combobox they appear by default in alphabetical order in the table.
How do I get the selected data in the combobox to appear in the same order on the table as selected and not in alphabetical order? I think it may have something to do with the criteria section of the query that generates the combobox from the source table!

Multiple combo box search for multiple columns
A brief background. I am trying to build a genetic database for tracking the propagation of genes in a family.

This means a particular fish can contain 1+ genes at a given time. I have separated these genes into 4 columns for easy tracking. The problem is when it comes to building a search form.

A particular gene can be in one of the 4 columns. So I need to search for that gene in all 4 columns. There are also multiple genes to search so I will need to search all 4 columns based on how many genes there are.

genes contain a key so my original plan was to transfer keys to 1 new column and run
like "*#*" AND like "*#*"
to find the genes of interest.


Trying to sort data into multiple columns on the report.
Access 2007 I have 1 data column that I want to get on a report, but I want it to break into two/three columns like so and have some space inbetween the columns:

1 | 7 | 13
2 | 8 | 14
3 | 9 | 15
4 | 10 | 16
5 | 11 | 17
6 | 12 | 18

The reason is this is a single checklist for people to fill out and multiple pages is unacceptable. The list will be printed.


Get multiple columns with same value
I've got multiple columns for the CFName on each tbl. My question is how can I create a query which will list all the customers with supplier id SP102.


Validation of ComboBox values
Using Access 2003. I have 2 tables (t_Data and t_Standards). I have 1 form (f_DataInputTemp). The form is based on t_Data with a combobox that selects records from the t_Standards table.

This Combobox lists 5 columns; ID, DuroLow, DuroHigh, PostLow, and PostHigh (these names are shortened here)
On the form there are 2 fields where data can be input that must be validated as being between the appropriate highs and lows.


Displaying text in combobox
I have a combobox with two columns. The first column is the bound value, but hidden (width is 0"). The second is what the user sees, and when selected it stores the value in the first column. However, if an item is removed from the list, even if it was selected in old records, the combobox will appear as blank on those old records even though the bound value exists for that record. Because the first column is hidden, the LimitToList property cannot be set to No. So now I have records that don't display properly. Is there any way to programmatically have the combobox display these old records on the form?

How to make cascading combobox from multiple tables
I've figured out how to make a combobox choose a value and filter it for the next combobox when the fields are in the same table.

How can I make it so I have multiple tables that would work the same way. For example a Product Type (table)>Product (table)>Colors (table). So all independent tables, but making showup in cascade like they would if I had them in one table with the method I'm using now.


Combo box selection updates multiple source fields in underlying t
I have one combo box with six columns. One value is tied to the underlying table. I want people to choose from the combobox, and have ALL 6 underlying fields updated according to the combo box selection. It updated the one field that has the underlying field as the record source, is there anyway to tie the remaining 5 columns to the underlying table?

Currently, the combobox relies on a separate table that populates its values (a lookup table more or less), but each field in the separate table does have a corresponding field in my main table.

I did the =column5(or whatever column) and got it to display the correct info for each column field in the form, but that doesn't affect the underlying table.


Run query based on value in combobox
I have a form with a combobox containing a list of elements. The row source type for the combobox is a query (SELECT Elements.Element FROM Elements ORDER BY Elements.Element). I would like to run a different query depending on the element selected in the combobox.

Each query will be a parameter query, the parameter values being provided by text boxes on the form.

I was thinking that I could add a column to the Elements table to hold the name of the query associated with each element.

I am not sure how to retrieve both columns from the Elements table into the combobox so that the query could be executed by clicking on a button on the form.

Using a combobox for searching multiple fields in "option group"
I'm still having a couple problems with searches. I have a search form, frm_Search. The form I am trying to filter, frm_Form1. An unbound combobox on frm_Search, Cbo_Permit. 6 different fields bound to tbl_Table1 within frm_Form1, fld_Permit1, fld_Permit2.

The 6 bound fields are within a custom made "option group" so that users can select the related permit(s) via check boxes. I understand this is a poor design because of multiple fields in the table but it looks good on the form and each record can have multiple permits.

What I would like, is to use an unbound combobox within frm_Search, Cbo_Permit, using the names of the fields I shown above. The user then selects a permit within the combobox and presses acommand button to open frm_Form1 filtered to that particular permit.
