Try this -

It's based on a sample from your earlier question, but I got there too late.

Look at the code behind the command button.

Here's the same think with your new sample...

All you need to do is right-click the textbox and select "Change to combobox"

Then set the combobox's rowsource property to:

SELECT DISTINCT [Ship Name] FROM tblSource
