How to edit columns in Combo Box based on user selection

Hi All

I have a three-column combo box, the first two columns are visible, and the third is an invisible Boolean field.

I would like to write VBA code in the combo box's AfterUpdate event that for whatever record the user selects, for the hidden column the selected row value is True, and all other row values to False.

Thanks in advance.

try something like this

private sub combo0_afterUpdate()

usql = "update table1 set selected=-1 where id=" & me.combo0
currentdb.execute usql

usql = "update table1 set selected=-1 where id<>" & me.combo0
currentdb.execute usql


end sub

selected is the third cp;umn of your combo, id is the bound column of the combo

What is the Row source type of the combo?

>What is the Row source type of the combo?
It's a query that's based on a SQL linked table.
 
I'll go with Cap's answer unless I hear otherwise, as I was favoring an answer that manipulated the combo box via VBA, to avoid any second-combo-box-dropdown refresh issues, but I suppose refreshing after the above SQL calls wouldn't be that big of a deal.
