Hi,
I have multiple DataList & DataCombo controls.  I would like to be able to programmatically set which item in the DataList or DataCombo is selected as a default based on input from a textbox.  It seems like it should be a simple thing to do.  However, I can't figure out how to do it.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Use the SelectedItem property.

Nevermind.  I realized, too late, that you wanted to SET and not READ.

I thought that seemed the way to go.  However, I can't get it to work.  I have tried various variations such as:
  Set DataCombo1.SelectedItem = 3
or
  Set DataCombo1.SelectedItem.Text = adodcRS1.recordset!RS1Descpription

I've gotten errors with everything combination I have tried.

You need to move to the appropriate record in the underlying recordset and then refresh the datacombo.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Adodc1.Recordset.Find "ProductName = '" & Text1.Text & "'"
    DataCombo1.Refresh
End Sub

This example sets the selected item of the datacombo1 to the value of the text1.text property. Where the datacombo is bound to the ADODC1 data control.

datacombo1= text1.text
