This is an extract from that thread:

Hi Richie,
dblextendedmatching in matchentry and dbcdropdownlist in style gives me more or less what I want. Could
be better though

I know how to populate the combo when working with dao. For a lot of reasons I used this time a dataenvironment
and unfortunately I don't see how to access the indexes .... when using this.

Thanks

els ..."
hope it helps

Hi Richie,
   I tried changing style to dbdropdownlist and matchentry to dbextendmatching.I want that user should be able to type in the editable portion of the combo.With dbdropdownlist,editable portion is not available.
So I can't use this.

Thankx for your help...

I have another question posted regarding Activex document. Please help me that, if possible

Activex document...i have to tell you something:
IMHO, Microsoft will no longer support this type of app in the near future. It is just my opinion.

you have tried with normal combo, why don't you replace Datacombo whit that one. It is less Headbreaker and works fine.
