VB 5.0 DBCombo MatchedWithList error VB 5.0 DBCombo MatchedWithList error ag (Programmer) (OP) 5 Nov 98 11:55 Has anyone come acorss a problem with the DBCombo.MatchedWithList property? It appears that irrespective of a user's selection from the list, that this property is always 'false'. Everything else works just fine. I am using VB 5, SP3. TIA ANdrew RE: VB 5.0 DBCombo MatchedWithList error bas (Programmer) 18 Jan 99 13:14 I recently used the MatchedWithList property for the first time and I had a problem with it always returning false until... After checking the DBCombo.MatchedWithList property I programmagramtically set the dBCombo.Text property. An example follows: If DBCombo.MatchedWithList = False Then MsgBox ("Select from list") TestData.RecordSource = "SELECT [TestTable].* FROM [TestTable]" TestData.Refresh TestData.Recordset.MoveFirst DBCombo.Text = TableData.Recordset![TestName] Exit Sub End If Does this help? RE: VB 5.0 DBCombo MatchedWithList error ag (Programmer) (OP) 20 Jan 99 16:07 Thanks for the reply......that's essentially the solution I arrived at although slightly differently.....if you set DBCombo.BoundText=DBCombo.BoundText (!) then it also appears to do the job....seems the DBCombo knows about the value but isn't passing it through somehow.
