i have a form with 3 textboxes across called

"Product description", "UnitPrice" and "Discount"

i have coppied these down in a control array ie

txtProductDescription(1)
txtProductDescription(2)

etc for each of the 3, what i would like to know is whenever i type in a product in the product description textbox it searches the "Products" table in my Access database and updates the other fields across with the appropriate information. How could i do this? and make it work for each txtbox down?

i am using the standard data control

thanks for any help!

The control array will share a change event and provide and index telling you what control has focus.

something like this in validate event

Private Sub txtProductDescription_Validate(Index As Integer, Cancel As Boolean)
If txtProductDescription(index)<> "" Then
   '**** Get Data from tables
  strSQL=" Select * from Table where roduct=" & txtProductDescription(index)
  'create recordset using ur connection
  if not recordset.eof then
      unitprice(index)=recordset("unitprice")
      discount(index)=recordset("discount")

  else
      msgbox "no data found for this product"
      cancel=true
  endif
End If
End Sub
