DBCombo & Listfield

I'm using DBCombo (VB 4.0) in my application. My Listfield property is using a "description" instead of "code" column from a table. Is it possible to check the primary key ("code" column) for the record that corresponds to the "description" column in the table just by using another property. Or I have to use a query to select the "code" for that "description". The problem is the "description" column may not be unique.

You need to get the code column along with the description column when you get your recordset or your resultset.  There is no other property that allows you to get columns that are not in the original resultset. This is one of the reasons that unbound controls are used, so that you can do have more control, and manage other variables and columns behind the user scenery.
