How to print the result from a SQL command in acces

i have a combo box where I select  card number.

Then on click I have a function "OnChange" that update  some textbox corresponding to the selected card number.

like Me.TextZone1 = DoCmd.RunSQL "SELECT [description] FROM [division] WHERE [NoDeCarte]=" & Me.ComboBox & " LIMIT=1"

But I want the result of the query to be printed in the textbox

do u need to put a AND in fromnt of LIMIT?


also how many records are you expecting to return?

if its lots, then use Franz's example, if its just the one record expected, then u could use DLOOKUP

Me.TextZone1 = DLOOKUP("description","division","NoDeCarte=" & Me.ComboBox & " AND LIMIT=1")

if NoDeCarte is a string

Me.TextZone1 = DLOOKUP("description","division","NoDeCarte='" & Me.ComboBox & "' AND LIMIT=1")

Short code:
Me.TextZone1 = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT [description] FROM [division] WHERE [NoDeCarte]=" & 
Me.ComboBox & " LIMIT=1").Fields("description").Value

Note that you might however do it with more lines to check errors etc;:

dim objRecord as Recordset
set objRecord = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT [description] FROM [division] WHERE [NoDeCarte]=" & 
Me.ComboBox & " LIMIT=1")
if objRecord.eof and objRecord.bof then
   '-> no record found with the criteria...
else
   Me.TextZone1 = objrecord.Fields("description").Value
end if
objRecords.close
set objRecord = nothing

Dim rs As DAO.Recordset

mysql = "SELECT [description] FROM [division] WHERE [NoDeCarte]=" & Me.ComboBox & " LIMIT=1;"
Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(mysql)
rs.MoveFirst
Me.TextZone1 = rs.fields(0)
rs.Close

no probs

just something else u need to know

if you dont find a match, DLOOKUP returns a null and that may fail
so wrap it with NZ or validate the return

Me.TextZone1 = NZ(DLOOKUP("description","division","NoDeCarte='" & Me.ComboBox & "' AND LIMIT=1"),"")
