Hi all.

I have a form with 5 textboxes. The first textbox is for the product number. I want the end user to be able to enter a product number in the textbox and have the other 4 fields  to be automatically filled in.

How can I do this using VBA?

You can use a Recordset for this:

Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
Set rst = Currentdb.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM SomeTable WHERE ProductNumber='" & Me.ProductNumber & "'")

If Not (rst.EOF and rst.BOF) Then
   Me.Textbox1 = rst("Field1")
   Me.Textbox2 = rst("Field2")
   Etc etc
End If

Of course, if your form is BOUND (i.e. has a Recordsource) and your Controls are also Bound, then you could run into issues with this, if you update the values in BOUND textboxes.
