Set Default Value in a DBLookupComboBox

I'm using a stock version of Delphi 7 and would like to display default values in combo boxes.

I've got DBLookupComboBoxes hooked up to a database source (grabbing values from a lookup table) and working properly; however, I would like to (upon creating a new record) automatically load a default value in the combo box (so as to save the user time by not *having* to select a value if none exists (or isn't applicable), for example).

As it stands right now, a user must manually select values for each combo box upon the creation of a new record...which can be a time-consuming practice (especially if the user selects the value (N/A or none)).

Any help on this would be appreciated.  Thanks!

mokule,

Thanks for the insight.  That has corrected the problem and it's working as anticipated.

Ivanov_G, I will also be looking further into your suggestion for another option elsewhere in the program.

Thanks again!
