Help fixing my NotInList code for a combo box

Hi there

I'm trying to see what I'm doing wrong with this NotInList code.

In my T_Programs (table called Programs), I have a Coach field which is
populated by a Combo Box that I created in a separated table called CB_Coach.


Private Sub Coach_NotInList(NewData As String, Response As Integer)

intAnswer = MsgBox("This coach" & NewData & " is not currently in the list."
& vbCrLf & _
"Would you like to add this coach to the list now?" _
, vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "This coach")


If intAnswer = vbYes Then
strSQL = "INSERT INTO CB_Coach([CB_Coach]) " & _
"VALUES ('" & NewData & "');"
DoCmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.RunSQL strSQL
DoCmd.SetWarnings True
MsgBox "This coach has been added to the list." _
, vbInformation, "NewData"
Response = acDataErrAdded

End If

End Sub

At first, I couldn't add a new coach. But then I did the following:

Column Count 2
Column Widths 0
Bound Column 2
Limit to List No
Allow Value List Edits Yes
Inherit List Value Yes

Now I can put a new name in the field but it's not added to the CB_Coach
table.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you in advance.

Can't be sure, but using RunSQL could be the problem. It
might not finish running before the combo box is requeried
(via acDataErrAdded).

Try replacing:
DoCmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.RunSQL strSQL
DoCmd.SetWarnings True

with:
CurrentDb.Execute strSQL, dbFailOnError

"It still doesn't work." is a singulaly uninformative
statement.

Did you get an error message?
If there was no error, have you opened the table to see what
was added?

A two column combo box would typically have an ID field in
the invisible bound column. Because your invisible column
is the bound column, I suspect you have the wrong bound
column or you are making the wrong column invisible.

I would also expect LimitToList to be set to Yes.
