Example in DAO

Dim DB as database
Dim RS as recordset
  Set DB = opendatabase("the name and path of the database")
  Set RS = DB.OpenRecordset("Select * from TABLENAME")
  Do until Rs.Eof
     From1.List1.Additem  RS!Fieldname that you want to use
     RS.MoveNext
  Loop
  RS.Close
  Set RS = Nothing

1. Add a Data Control to your form.. set its DataBase property to your Access mdb file.. and Set its RecordSource property to the table you want (a dropdown).

2. Add a Textbox for each Field. In each Textboxs property.. Set the Datasource Property to the Data Control you created in step 1 (a dropdown).. and set the DataField property to the Table field you want (a dropdown).

Voile you are done.. <smile>.

The data control will allow you to move from record to record.. and if you like, you can add code to your textbox events.
