What could I be doing wrong, my cbo box does not allow anything to be selected, it fills the box with the correct values, however, when I scroll over them no matter how hard I press the mouse button :-) I can not get the value to stick to the box. (And that means the after change event will not fire!)

Should this maybe be in the Access Database Zone?

Sometimes u can code it but event is not properly registered
go back to forms design, select your combo, go to its properties, go to the Event tab and select On After Update. if code is correct, it should take u there

this happens when you modify something that's already working. You add a field to it, and forget to change the number of columns, or you change the bound column...things like that. Also happens when you rename objects. Oops..lost the code for  it.
I know thats not the case here though...can't be.

"And that means the after change event will not fire!"

If I understand correctly, the cbo code is in the CHANGE event. Assuming this is correct, the code should actually be in the AFTER UPDATE event. At least from my experience, this has always been the case.

jmcdonald69124,
check the rowsource of your combo.
is it coming from a single table?
is your combo bound to a field of the record source of your form?
is the recordsource of your form a table or a query that involves more than one table?
