Multiple Comboboxes on 1 form

Multiple Comboboxes on 1 form

Good Morning

I have a question relating to multiple combo boxes on one form....I have 4.

The first 3 allow the user to select a single record from 3 seperate tables. The 4th needs to be able to select records from a 4th file based on the 3 items selected in the first 3 combo boxes!

Please can someone advise how I do this?

Many thanks

What do you mean by "file"?

You really need to provide some additional context and tables/fields. Control names would also help. When you say "select" do you want to filter a form or subform or report based on the selections?

Do you mean - if you make a selection from Combo1 and Combo2, then you have different selections in Combo3 and different in Combo4?

Combo1  Combo2         Combo3  Combo4

Have fun.
