Or have another field with address/city, and also display that field.

You can also set the controlsource to concatenate the two fields.

tblSuppliers:
--------------------------------
|Tradingname|City|
--------------------------------
|ABC Traders |NYC|
|Fosters Beer|MEL|
--------------------------------

Setting a textbox's control source to
=tradingname & " - " & city

Open in new window

should display "Fosters Beer - MEL"

There are loads of solutions to this one, and it really depends on how you want to lay out your form.

I think it would be much easier to help if you could upload a sample .mdb - Is this possible?
