MS Access VBA Combo Box Issue

jonsuns7 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hi Eveyone,

I have a combo box on a form that opens up after the user clicks on a button in another form.
When the form opens up, the combo box is populated already with a name in the box. The values displayed for the combo box are  populated by way of a query.(In the record source property)

I don't want any names showing in the combo box when the form is first opened. I am having a brain lapse, I thought you could do that through a property. Am I wrong?
