Very Strange: A Change event doesn't capture selected value of the combobox!

This is very strange behaviour I am noticing in vb6
I have a combobox on my form which I created using VB APP
The combobox is called Line.  When the user selects the value, on this combo box,
using mouse key, I am able to see the value in the
change event.  Howver, if user is going from field to field using the tab key, and when he/she arrives
at the Line field he/she will press a letter say 'g' and corresponding value will be selected.  The user than tabs off
to the next field.  As soon as this is done, the Line_Change event is triggered.  When I check the value it's null.
even though they have selected something!  Any idea why this behaviour?  What is the way around it?

Private Sub Line_Change()
If Me.Line.Value = 3 Or Me.Line.Value = 4 Then
     do something....
    do something else..
end if
End Sub

Just use the Line_Click event...
Does combox has value attribute? or shoud be text?
