Hi,

I have a combobox of Value List type which is populated like this in onCurrent event:

Private Sub Form_Current()
    Me.Combo25.AddItem "Occupied"
    Me.Combo25.AddItem "Unoccupied"
End Sub

The problem is that I simply can't select the value. I can't type in the combobox, nothing! Why is that?

Double check that the combo box is enabled and it's locked property is set to "No"

That code alone should not have that effect.
