OK so I have these three Combo Boxes.  CBO1, CBO2 and CBO3.

All three boxes have the exact same listings in them.  Designators.  (A person can have up to three designators in the App.)

What I would like to try and do is this:

Let's say the CBO1 box has the designator 'SW' in it and CBO2 and CBO3 say 'NONE'
Now I select 'IDW' as the designator for CBO2 and leave CBO3 with 'NONE'

What I would love for the app to do is this:

If the IDW designator is choosen in CBO2 or CBO3 it automatically puts it in the CBO1 box and what was in the CBO1 box is moved to the CBO2 box and what was in the CBO2 box get's moved to the CBO3 box.

I am sure this will need to be in the afterupdate event for all three boxes I'm just not sure how to make something like this happen.  If it's possible.
