In an adp project, I create a temp table called #Employee.
I can access the records in this table through code or a stored procedure, but when I try to use it as a rowsource for a combo box, I get the error that the record source doesn't exist for this form or report. I get this error even if I use the Stored Procedure that does return records.

So, is there any to get the records of a temp table into a combobox?

Sure. many ways.  Easy solution would be make a Select Query:

TempTableListQuery

With the fields you want from the temp table.   Then on your combo box, set the row source type to table/query and the row source to the query, and select the number of columns, and which column u want the query to be bound to.

There are no persistant queries,... but there should be plenty of SQL usage...

Why not use a persistant table, but clear it before use?  Refill it as needed??

Creating and destroying objects is always a messy business in an application.
