what is the RowSource of the combo box Provider Name in the Login form?

you can use the double click event of the field FullName from the form Service.. to select the value from the Provider Name combo box, but this will depend on the RowSource of the combo box.

The RowSource of the combo box Provider Name is SELECT [tblEmp].[FullName], [tblEmp].[Service] FROM tblEmp ORDER BY [FullName];--  I would lke to give the user the option to select from the combo box or the from the form Service
