Here is a 3rd party active x control that could probably be used in an access application.

I've never used this, but I just went through the demo.

A ha!

Nearly there!  Now I using the work around provided by you.  Is there a way I can insert code prior to the below code to say that if "Cashier" and/or "Order" is not selected to do nothing apart from display a message advising to select a cashier and date first?

Cheers
