Writing to a text box

On an order form I have 2 combo boxes, one with product, and the other with desription. The description combo box requerys after the product combo update. I have a text box that I want the value from the product and description box to go to. I want them side by side eg. literature-leaflets, and there are only five lines in the text box.

To get the TextBox to contain the contents of the two combos you would do ...

txtProductDescription.Text = cboProduct.Text & " - " & cboDescription.Text

This code should be in the click event of both combos.  Am guessing your combos are set to be dropdown lists rather than actual combos?

Not sure what relevance the 'only has 5 lines' is though?
Hope the following helps...
Make the text box property Multiline = true and you can add multiple entries into the text box.
