I have a parent form which contains a Combo Box with the following SQL:

SELECT Mid(Claimant,InStr(1,Claimant," ")+1) AS Expr1, Strings.Claimant
FROM Strings
WHERE ((([Claimant] & "")<>""))
GROUP BY Mid(Claimant,InStr(1,Claimant," ")+1), Strings.Claimant
ORDER BY Mid(Claimant,InStr(1,Claimant," ")+1);


I want to link a Subform to the answer that the person chooses in the combo.
The Subform Contains Claimant, so I am trying to figure out how to link claimant.

set the master/child link fields property of the subformcontrol

but, i think it is not a good thing using a part of the claimant field as the bound column of the combo box, as it is very possible to have duplicate values.

do you have a unique id field for claimants?
it will be best to use the unique id as the bound column of the combo box.

I want each record that contains the name Claimant to show in the subform, so its good if there are duplicate values.

I am not sure what the values should be in the subformcontrol however.

Master:  Combo171 ?  How do I pick the correct column being returned in the combo box?

The Bound Column property of the comboBox determines the column being returned.  In your case, setting it to 1 will return Expr1 and setting it to 2 will return Claimant.

please explain



in your expression

Mid(Claimant,InStr(1,Claimant," ")

this will return possible duplicates, i.e.,

with the claimant names

jack smith
john smith
ann smith
dave clark
kent clark
etc..
"smith" will all be listed three times as items in your combo box
"clark" will be listed twice

but this can be eliminated to display as single items respectively
