in what event are you using the codes you posted?

what is the name of the combo box?

here are the event that you can use to open the form
* afterupdate event of the combo

private sub comboName_afterupdate()
dim strDoc as string
strDoc=Me.comboName
docmd.openform strDoc

end sub
* click event of a button


private sub  Button_click()
dim strDoc as string
strDoc=Me.comboName
docmd.openform strDoc

end sub

Thats where I drop the ball ,

Because I couldn't actually make it work as I want it , (auto creation of forms and stuff) I just work around it and produce a master copy to be added manually ,

The purposeis a crm where each employee can enter the data for new customers and the followed it up , so in each entry they put the details of the customer and it show them where are they , if its waiting , or due ,etc....
I need to know the entries for each employees because some have different functions , and Im work to sort how can i make  , for examples , Sales take care until contract is sign them automatically goes to admin and founding , and after they are done automatic service providers , ( all part of the company ), But im stock in this now . any Ideas??

the first thing that you need to do is to add a field to your table that will hold the name of the employee responsible or who created the record.
do you follow so far?
