I have the following code

cbocombo1.ListIndex = txtIng1.Text
Dim ComboValue1() As String
ComboValue1 = Split(cbocombo1.List(cbocombo1.ListIndex - 1))
lbling1.Caption = Trim(ComboValue1(2))


it works but when an item on the combolist has a value of Zero then then it tells me subscript out of range,

is there any way that it the items on the combolist have a value of zero just ignore the statement

If you want the text of the selected item you need:
cbocombo1.List(cbocombo1.ListIndex))
NOT
cbocombo1.List(cbocombo1.ListIndex - 1))

The items on a combo box have indexes going from 0 to n-1

What exactly is your code trying to do?

OK, I am trying to display the items from and access table
Field1  has a number 1 to 300
Field2 has a description to each of the 1 to 300 of field1

when I select item 1 ffrom field1, then I want to display the corresponding description which is on field2

Let me explain this a little better, Two tables from access database

Table 1 is called Final
Table 2 is ING

Final contains a field called Ing_N0, which is a number, now on the ING table
the fields are
Ing_N0
Description

When the user selects a Ing_N0 from the Final table I want this number to look on the ING table and display the description based on the ING_N0 selected

Are they standard comboboxes?
Do you do to the database after the user has selected a Ing_N0 from the Final table combo or are the values already in the other combo?
It might help if you pasted in some more code.

Just add a label to your form and try this in the cboCombo1_Click event:

Label1.Caption = cboCombo1.List(cboCombo1.ListIndex))


You will see that the label displays the selected combo item.

Sorry took so long to come back, but I still have problems with this
I know the listindex begins at zero , but the table does not have am item zero

here is what I have that I can not figure out

Private Sub txting2_Change()
cbocombo1.ListIndex = txting2.Text
Dim ComboValue2() As String
ComboValue2 = Split(cbocombo1.List(cbocombo1.ListIndex))
lbling2.Caption = Trim(ComboValue2(2))
lbling2b.Caption = Trim(ComboValue2(4))
lbling2c.Caption = Trim(ComboValue2(6))
lbl2d.Caption = Trim(ComboValue2(8))
lbl2f.Caption = Trim(ComboValue2(10))
End Sub


txting2 is always out of sinc with the other fields
