MS Access 2007 - Programatically select value in combobox

I am populating a form and I need to programatically select a value in a combobox.

I tried me.mycombobox.value = i

Its not working.

Any idea how to do this?

me.mycombobox.value = i was the solution.  There was an issue with the combobox.

what is the rowsource of the combo box?

post the rowsource of your combo box.

is your form bound to a table or query or unbound?

Here is how the combobox is being populated.

Private Sub GetLocations()

    Dim db As Database
    Dim rs As Recordset
    Dim i As Integer
    i = 0
    sql = "SELECT LocationID, LocationType, LocationName, ProjectID "
    sql = sql & "FROM Location "
    sql = sql & "WHERE ProjectID = " & Me.cboProjectID.Column(0) & " "

    Set db = CurrentDb
    Set rs = db.OpenRecordset(sql)

    Me.cboLocation.RowSource = ""

    If Not rs.EOF Then
        Me.cboLocation.Locked = False
        Do Until rs.EOF
            Me.cboLocation.AddItem Item:=rs![LocationID] & ";" & rs![LocationName] & ";" & rs![LocationType], Index:=i
            i = i + 1
    End If

End Sub

what about your form, can you provide a description about your form?

can you give more explanation on

< i need to  programatically select a value in a combobox. >

based on what?, which item in the combo box do you want to be selected programmatically ?
