Running query from an OnChange event on form.

I have a for that has a drop down box and I have a qry the looks at the name that is in the drop down box and returns data based on the choice. I now need the qry to run when that box changes. How do I run a query from the OnChange Event of a field?

Is the query set as your form's recordsource?

You would use the After_Update event of the combo box generally, and the code would look like this:

Private Sub cboname_AfterUpdate()
Me.Recordsource.Requery
End Sub

Something similar to that.  I put Me.Recordsource because I'm not sure what exactly you're requerying.  However, any query that uses a combo box as part of it's criteria can be run this way, or executed with the DoCmd.OpenQuery function once the combo box has been updated (After_Update event).

I am guessing from the wording of your Q that you are not a code writer.
Therefore the simplest way to do this is to build a macro that uses the Openquery action to open your named query.
Then in the OnChange event property you can select that macro from the drop down list and it will run whenever the value changes - although you will have to close the query yourself each time, before the next run.

ok when I do this:
Private Sub Combo6_Change()
Me.qryReport.Requery
End Sub

I get Method or data member not found error when I change the name in the first dox.

Private Sub Combo6_AfterUpdate()
Me.List8.Requery

that worked. Thanks, I just misunderstood what you meant.
