Essentially I have this issue:
I have a form - which is a continuous form and for each record I have a button called View History - which links to an individual form for that record (View/Edit history of individual location).
Now if I go to the location form (View/Edit history of individual location). directly, the combo box works fine on that form
BUT if I click on View History and then go to the combo box (set up to locate records), it doesn't do anything..any suggestions.
