Requery a form based on 3 cmbbox columns

Requery a form based on 3 cmbbox columns

Could someone please tell me how I would go about requerying a form and subform based on all three columns in a combo box selection.

Basically like this:

Form has txtbx1, txtbx2, txtbx3, cmbbx.column(0),(1),(2) subform

When a user makes a selection in the cmbbx I want the whole form to requery Where txtbx1 = cmbbx.column(0) txtbx2 = cmbbx.column(1) txtbx3 = cmbbx.column(2)

RE: Requery a form based on 3 cmbbox columns

Why would you need to requery anything if the control sources are:
Changing the value of cmbbx should automatically display the correct values in the text boxes.

The cmbbx works as a filter currently but, only filters for one field....

Private Sub cmbProjNameFilter_AfterUpdate()
Me.Filter = "[Project_Name] = '" & Me![cmbProjNameFilter] & "'"
Me.FilterOn = True
End Sub

Private Sub cmbProjNameFilter_LostFocus()
If Me.FilterOnLoad = False Then Me!cmbProjNameFilter = ""
End Sub

But, I want it to work something like this:

Private Sub cmbProjNameTTM_AfterUpdate()
Dim strSQL As String

Me.Filter = "[Project_Name] = '" & Me![cmbProjNameTTM].Column(0) & "'" And "[Project_Version] = '" & Me![cmbProjNameTTM].Column(1) & "'" And "[TTM_Phase] = '" & Me![cmbProjNameTTM].Column(2) & "'"

RE: Requery a form based on 3 cmbbox columns

So what do you get when you do this:

Dim strFilter As String

strFilter = "[Project_Name]    = '" & Me![cmbProjNameTTM].Column(0) & "'" & _
       " And [Project_Version] = '" & Me![cmbProjNameTTM].Column(1) & "'" & _
       " And [TTM_Phase]       = '" & Me![cmbProjNameTTM].Column(2) & "'"

Debug.Print strFilter

Me.Filter = strFilter

Have fun.
