I have a two tables with the following relationships.

   Many              joined by DistID   One
   Customer Table                       Distributor Table
   CustID                               DistID
   CustName                             DistName
   DistID                               DistAddress
Now I want to create a form that allows me to edit an existing Distrubotor.  So I have it prompt the user to select an existing Distrubutor and then it goes and brings up that distributor record with the Distributor ID that matches the Distributor name selected by the user.  Unfortunetly when I try to edit the information it won't let me because it says it is bound by DistID.  I understand why it says that but how do I go about searching distributor and having the capability to edit a record?

Thanks,  You all are great,,

RE: Search record

if you take the properties for the combo box and either change the order of the fields in the look up or make the field name be bound.  That should let you write to it.  I don't know if it will allow for updating  but you should be able to edit.
