MSACCESS 2007 and QBF

I've set up a form, QBF form,  which I base user inquiries from.  In this form I have two fields, orders and lastname.  orders is a textbox and when it is filled in with an order number a macro is called that displays a "results" form,  which is based on a query and subquery.  The Query selects the data by using the input form the original QBF form. This all works just fine.  The 2nd field is a combo box, a bit more tricky apparently,  the combo field is populated by an underlying query into a table in the database.  The item that a user selects is found by using Combo13 or whatever name you give the box .value.  So, I set up the underlying query to refer to the selected value as combo13.value.  However, when I run the form I receive a prompt from the query for combo13.value.  I know that combo13.value has the selected last name at the "before update" event. I displayed, via a msgbox, combo13.value and it contained the value that was selected.  Where am I going wrong? Oh, by the way, I'm using MS/Access 2007

In the query you need to refer to the fully qualified form control.
[Forms]![TheNameOfTheForm]![Combo13]

Post the SQL of you query

I forgot the [Forms] part of the qualification.  Thanks for prompting me!
