In my form, I'm populating drop down boxes with values from an access database.  However, the read page does not have the list from the database, it only has the value selected. How can I access the database in the read page?

Make sure the Read page has the same control as the Compose page, so that your code in the Form_Open event handler can populate it. Also, the recipient needs to have access to the same database.

Thanks, I already had everything clicking.  My prob was that a control was not defined, therefore the form stopped execution at that point.  Thanks anyway!
