Utilizing the following code,
I would like the user to be able to select locations from the following comboxes:
startAdd_cmb, endAdd_cmb
Then have the values transmitted to the startfield and the endfield so that they can become the starting and ending locations.

The combo boxes were created in Flash with the data.

Please advise
