Combo box after update err 424 "Object Required"

I am trying to control what happens when a user types in something not in the list or backspaces over what they have typed in the combo box and then hit Enter.

The following If in the combo box after update triggers error 424 "Object Required".

If Me![cboReservationID] Is Not Null And Me![cboReservationID] <> "" Then
   'Do some things using cboReservationID
End If

What's up?

Thanks, Lyle

Change this:

If Nz(Me.cboReservationID.Column(0), "") <> "" Then
  <do whatever here>
End If

Of course, this only checks whether some value is entered into the combo ... this is not as reliable as the arguments returned by the NotInLIst event. In that event, the NewData argument contains the new information  entered by the user, which you can use to determine if a new record should be added to the combo's underlying recordsource.

Try
If Not IsNull(Me![cboReservationID]) And Me![cboReservationID] <> "" Then
   'Do some things using cboReservationID
End If

Or, even more succinctly,
If Nz(Me![cboReservationID],"") <> "" Then
   'Do some things using cboReservationID
End If

Try this,

Private Sub cboreservationId_AfterUpdate()
If (Not IsNull(Me![cboreservationId])) And Me![cboreservationId] <> "" Then
   'Do some things using cboReservationID
End If

End Sub
