Setting ListIndex with Text Value, without User Interaction...

Here is what im doing. I populate the Combo Boxs with values from a database, which sets the text values and the Itemdata that corresponds to the text value.
Then I retreive values the text values from the database that corresponds to whatever record the user wants to display.

Here is the problem:

When the user finds a record and then edits a record, but just edits one field, the other Combo Boxs remain at a listindex of -1. So when I attempt to UPDATE my database, and retreive the ItemData using - field = cbo.ItemData(cbo.ListIndex). I get an error.
 

Part of Code:

strSQL = "UPDATE tblMaster " & _
            "SET CountyID = " & cboCounty.ItemData(cboCounty.ListIndex) & _
            ", RouteID = " & cboRoute.ItemData(cboRoute.ListIndex) & _
            ", PostMile = " & txtPostMile.Text & _
            ", MaterialID = " & cboMaterial.ItemData(cboMaterial.ListIndex) & _
            ", DetailID = " & cboDetail.ItemData(cboDetail.ListIndex) & _
            ", vDate = " & txtDate.Text & _
            ", Comments = " & txtComments.Text & _
            " WHERE PKey = " & lblPKey.Caption

----

So how would I get the proper listindex through code?

When you initially grab the user data, you need to set the ListIndex property of the combobox after they have been loaded using something like:


For i = 0 to cboCountry.ListCount - 1
    If cboCountry.List(i) = strUsersValue Then
        cboCountry.ListIndex = i
        Exit For
    End If
Next
