Updating Combo Box lists

Updating Combo Box lists

Updating Combo Box lists

I am developing an application which uses a combo box to enter data into a field on a form in datasheet mode.
The combo box is based on a query which pulls a list of part numbers previously used by a supplier. This works fine for the first record entered but the query does not appear to be re-run for each new record entered. ( it needs to re-run as selection depends on supplier)
How do I get the combo box to requery the data for each new record added?

RE: Updating Combo Box lists

I have a similar problem with a list box.  The list is based on a query and I need the list contained to change dependent on a second field.  Started to write code to do it but ended up getting more and more confused.  All help appreciated!!!

RE: Updating Combo Box lists

You guys should search the vairous Access forums for the key word "Requery." it's a common newbie question... yes i had the same question too


yes, you'll need to requery your comboBox after you update the part number... this is straight forward to do. with a
Me.MyComboBox.Requery command.  the only issue is choosing the best time to requery.  That's going to depend on when & where those partNo/Supplier relationships are estabished. if their on the the same form or even on a subform then you're golden & see my note to Craig. if not then let me know & we'll go on from there


you're in great shape, in the SecondFieldControl_AfterUpdate event you can add the Me.MyComboBox.Requery command
