Microsoft, Access, 2003, Control Wizard

Why would I be missing some options in the Combo box and List box control wizard?

I am adding a combobox to a form.  Control Wizards option in the toolbox toolbar is selected. I select the combo box tool and then click on the form at the desired location for the combo box.  The combo box wizard opens to the first page. On that page, I see the "I want the combo box to look up the values ..." and "I will type in the values ..." options.  A third option is supposed to be displayed according to the help files in Office and on MSDN site.  That third option refers to find a record on the form.  That third option is the one I want, yet it does not appear.  

Why would it not appear and what must I change to make it appear?

My guess is that you could be using an unbound form, so there is nothing to find.

Peter57r,

I believe it has a recordset because the follow SQL is in the Record Source property.

SELECT Contacts.[Last Name], Contacts.[Maiden Name], Contacts.[First Name], Contacts.[Middle Name], Contacts.[Nick Name], Contacts.[E-mail Address], Contacts.Work, Contacts.[Years There], Contacts.[Home Phone], Contacts.[Mobile Phone], Contacts.Address, Contacts.City, Contacts.[State/Province], Contacts.[ZIP/Postal Code], Contacts.[Spouse Name], Contacts.[Contact's Interests], Contacts.[Spouse's Interests], Contacts.[Spouse's Work], Contacts.[Children Names], Contacts.[Grandchildren Names], Contacts.[Retirement Plans], Contacts.Health, Contacts.[Photo 70], IIf(IsNull([photo 70]),Null,"E:\Documents and Settings\Mike\My Documents\Business\NHS\" & [photo 70]) AS pic
FROM Contacts
ORDER BY Contacts.[Last Name];

I will try a test case and seel if that makes the wizard behave differently.

Cheers,

Peter57r,

You were correct.  A test case did confirm that was the problem.
