I have a Sub/SubForm with a ComboBox on it.

The Combobox has about 10 items in it, pulled from SQL Server with a empty top lone.

On Form open, how do I select the first row down using VBA?
(Not the top "empty" row

try

me.combo0.value=me.combo0.itemdata(0)

or

me.combo0.value=me.combo0.itemdata(1)

is the rowsource of your combo is multicolumn?

Yes its setting it correctly...just checked your code out.

But I also have some code that runs on the Combobox after update event
 cmbVisits_AfterUpdate()

How do I run that after your code?
 Me.cmbVisits.Value = Me.cmbVisits.ItemData(0)

Or do I need to award points on this open another question?

no need to use this codes
Me.cmbVisits.Value = Me.cmbVisits.ItemData(0)

in the afterupdate event of the combo box,
if you select an item from the combo box, that will be the value of the combo box.

This combobox is actually in a sub form

The subform has 6 other subforms with it
The 6 other subforms get updated by the After update event of this combobox

So....
I'm setting the value...and it shows when I go to the subform
but the after update...which loads all the other forms is not running

This is actually working now.

I have other After_Update issues that will be addressed in another question with a database attached.
