I am using Visual Basic 6. I have a database created using built in data manager and it contains one table and two fields who have more than 50 entries. I am using one dbcombo to select an entry from feild1.
My question is I want to display the CORRESPONDING entry of FIELD2 in a text box i.e.  changing the selection in dbcombo(containing entry from field1) leads to correspondance change in textbox who will contain entry from field2. How can i do so...please provide code...Thanx

Change yourfield1, yourfield2 and yourtable to the corresponding field names and table name. If field1 is of numeric type then you'll have to remove the singlequotes (') from the sql statement. myConn is the connection and myRS is the recordset, rename it accordingly.

Private Sub Combo1_Click()
myRS.CursorLocation = adUseClient
myRS.Open "SELECT yourfield2 FROM yourtable WHERE yourfield1='" & Combo1.Text & "';", myConn, adOpenKeyset, adLockReadOnly
    With myRS
        If Not .EOF Then
            Text1.Text = !yourfield2
        Else
            MsgBox "Can't find corresponding field"
        End If
    End With
myRS.Close
End Sub
