Data-bound combo box

I am trying to write a simple recipe management program, using a data control and a data-bound combo box.  I want the combo box to be populated using all the recipe names on file for a certain category (e.g., list all the recipes from the "Appetizers" category).  My data control's RecordSource property is a query (list all recipe names where the category = "Appetizers").  The combo box populates correctly, but when I select one of the entries, my other text boxes are not updated with the data for that recipe (even though their DataSource and DataField properties point to my database). If I put in a Data1.Refresh in the dcCombo_Change event, the combo box text is always changed back to the original selection.  How do I update the current record to indicate a new selection from the combo box?

Hi,
The data control or other controls wont move to that record automatically. In the combo click event, get the index of that combo list in a var A and then move the data control after refreshing to that record no using a for loop. i.e do MOVENEXT from 0 to A times.

Following your suggestion, I entered the following command in my
dbcRecipeName_Change event:

    dtaAppetizers.Recordset.Bookmark = dbcRecipeName.SelectedItem

dbcRecipeName is the combo box; dtaAppetizers is my data control.

When I run the program, I get the following error after selecting an entry fromthe combo box:

     Run-time error '3426':

     The action was cancelled by an associated object.

Hi tttaff,

Did you get your problem fixed?  The reason is I have the same problem/need as you have and am looking for a solution.  I have  categories  and subcategories and want only to bring up the subcategories of the selected category, using data cbo.   I'm new to VB6.  Have done this in Access many times...
