2 ways to search thru records with combo box

davetough asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
am attaching a sample database with 2 forms.
open database and open form1-
I have  code in combo box.
   [Dim rs As Recordset
  Set rs = Me.Recordset.Clone
  rs.FindFirst "[ClientID] = " & Me.cboSelectClient.Value
  If Not rs.EOF Then Me.Bookmark = rs.Bookmark]

I realized I can also create with the wizard (form2)-the same type of search.

question: they both use the same query in the row source of the combobox.But I don't understand how form2 can work without the code that form1 has.
Can you explain the differences of the two forms?
thank you
