I have a combo box that finds records. User wants to see the dropdown list as soon as entering box, no problem. Once the user determines that the record they arelooking for is not in the database they want to create it. To get to the new record form they will have to ESC to get the dropdown list to disappear and then ESC again to get the typed text to revert back to last item typed or to a blank box, otherwise I get the "not in list" error message. Is there a way to automate the ESC key instead of having to type it twice?
