Combobox Duplication Problem

Combobox Duplication Problem

Combobox Duplication Problem

I have a combobox on a form in Access 2010. My problem is that when I use the combobox and save the record, it generates a duplicate of the option chosen. This is cluttering my table and repeating information that is already documented. The only code associated with the combobox is:

Private Sub LocationNum_Change()

Me.ShipAdress.Value = Me.LocationNum.Column(2)

Me.PlantName.Value = Me.LocationNum.Column(1)

End Sub

This code simply populates two related fields on the form with the correct corresponding data. I don't understand why it is doing this. How can I stop it from generating duplicate data? I appreciate the help in advance

RE: Combobox Duplication Problem

Is the LocationNum a name of your combobox?
If so, the Change event fires only when you actually type something in the combo box, and it does not fire if you select an item in the combo box.

Have fun.

There is a great need for a sarcasm font.
