Combo Box

Guest

I need help...when I add a drop down box to a form (listing all employees),
and want to populate it from values in a table, when I choose my first value,
it fills in that value for all the employees, not just the one showing on the
form.

Thank you for your help.

When a TextBox or ComboBox are UnBound (Not linked to a field in the table
that the form is bound to) then the value selected will show in all the
records.

Check the Combo ControlSource property, and select the right field where you
want the value selected to be stored in.

I'd like to report that I fixed the problem, but I'm still stuck. What
bothers me is that I have other drop down boxes on my form, and they work
just fine!

What I did was to add a field to my source table, and linked it via lookup
to the table containing the 4 choices I want to pick from. But when I added
the field to the related form, it tells me the form can't be edited; it's
bound to unknown field "Meeting Location".

Very frustrated...I've done this several times before, and I know I'm just
missing it by one (or two) steps.
