Hi,

Have a subform in my form:

There is a combo box which displays taskID and TaskDescription and bound TaskID to the combobox. and should display taskdescription in the textfield beside it and then automatically display the next row of combobox and textfield for the second entry.

The problem I have, I can not populated the textfield after making a selection. I keep getting #Name? in this text field.

Here are how combobox and textfield set up:

TaskID  TaskDescription

TaskID
All: cmb_task
control source: TaskID
AfterUpdate:Event Procedure : Me!Task = cmb_task.Column(1)

Data:
control source: taskID
row source: select taskID, task from task  bound column: 1,

TaskDescription:
Name: Task
controlsource: Task

Date: control source: TASK

how can I get this fixed. (when I make the task textfield unbound, then it does not add the second row...)

thanks in advance

The row source for combobox is the select statement: select taskID, taskdescrription from task.
Bound column is 1.

If your combo box is named MyComboBox, then try setting your task description textbox control source to

=MyComboBox.Column(1)

That is exactly what is done but it is not working:

TaskID
All: cmb_task
control source: TaskID
AfterUpdate:Event Procedure : Me!Task = cmb_task.Column(1)

I'm not sure if we're talking about the same thing here.

It sounds like you have a text box that you want to have display the task description. If so, set the text box control source to "=cmb_task.Column(1)"

If i'm misunderstanding, please set me straight.

It was initially set in the after update event of TaskID combobox.
If I understood you correctly, I removed initial code and I added "=cmb_task.Column(1)"
to the control source of textfield in the property sheet.

unfortunately it is still displaying the #Name?

Let's verify the name of your combo box control. Is it "cmb_task", or is it named something else?
