i am using access 2010, and would like to have a combo box and text field on a form, i would ilke when the user selects a value from the combo box, it adds it to the value of the text box, so the user can add several values, the value would be seperated by commas. I am thinking of using a macro - with an after update event, but not sure how to append to the value already in the text box.

use the afterupdate event of the combo

private sub combo0_afterupdate()
dim str as string
str=str & me.combo0

me.text1=me.text1 & str & ","

end sub
