# using if statement on a form based on one combo box to fill another

Posted on 2007-12-06

Hello,
I am using an access form.
I use an if statement : If me.cboOne = "14545" Then
me.txtOne = "LC12 GB"
I base the text box on what the combo box is.
QUESTION: Is there a way to base a 2nd combo box on what first combo box is?
thank you

If you are trying to base a combo box on another try this.

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/Q_23000738.html?cid=236#a20404439

That would be if you have multiple columns in a table and if the first column equals lets say 1 then only options where the first column equalled 1 would show in the second combobox.

Is that what you mean or just a simple if statement?

I guess I mean a simple statement
like  If me.cboOne = " choice one" Then
me.cboTwo = ( choice one, choice two, or choice three)
can you do it anyway like that?
or is your solution more the way you have to do it?
thanks

If you have a table set up like this then the first solution would be your best option

1      Doug
2      Dave
2      Jennifer
2      Alyssa
3      Sally

So if you select 2 in combo1 then only Dave, Jennifer and Alyssa would appear in combo2.

You can write a long If statement but that depends on how many items are in you first combobox

If Me.Combo1 = "1" Then
Me.Combo2 = "2"
Else
If Me.Combo1 = "2" Then
Me.Combo2 = "3"
End If
