OK Experts,

I have a combo-box, and a text-box. I also have two seperate recordsets.I want to populate the text box with a value from TBALE 2 which is filtered through the combo-box. i.e. Choose a value in the combo-box, and the text box auto-fills with the appropriate TABLE 2 value.

=Populates combo-box

=Will populate text-box
=with User_ID based on
=MSC_ID chosen in combo-box
MSCManager_ID (PK)
User_ID (Value that goes in text box)

*There are some other quirks involved. 1) I am already using an "OnChange" event with JS on the combo-box, 2) There will be multiple records on the page at the same time. End result is a page that allows me to update mulitple records, loop through them and update at the same time.

So the combo box is a list of values from table 1 and when an option is selected, you want to check that value against values from table 2 and then populate the text box accordingly?

Also, could you please post the code you have so far so I can get a better idea of the layout of your page/script

you can have more than one JS function run in the onchange event handler.
<select id="ex" onchange="dosomething(); nowdothis(param, param2); thisisnext(); fourthfunction(param);">

This is the complete code for the entire page. Right now the page uses a recordset to populate the table. There are two additional recordsets (mentioned in my first post) that will be used to update the two values in the first table. The JAVASCRIPT is used in the onchange of the of select box to place the ID number of each record into a hidden field. When the page is updated each variable is looped through and updated as needed.

What I want to do is also add to the onchange event a new function that can use the value in the select box to grab an ID from the other recordset to update a text box.

OH, in the above the third recordset isnt in there yet. This will be a simple recordset that lists a user_id for each MSC as such:

MSC_ID (this will be selected from the select box)
User_ID (this is the value that needs to go into the box)

The field that gets updated is actually the field: tbl_Stamp.User_ID from the first recordset.

OK, Folks, I already figured it out!!! I just added another recordset INSIDE my loop and assigned a variable to it. This allowed me to get what I wanted. It might not be terribly efficient as it means another call to the database, but there is limited people using it so it shouldnt be too bad.

We can cancel the question!!!! Thank you anyways.
