I have two combo boxes looking at the same table in my database, is there a way to check that the two combo boxes have the same record as in the table. The first combo box is cbodept and the second one is cbosegment. Table name is depttable. I was thinking of using the beforeupdate. I would like to place on the form properties, is this right? I want to make sure what's on the record in the table matches what is being entered by the user.
