I need a combobox on a form that allows the capability to either type in the emplyee id or allows you to move through the list of employees, the combo has two fields connected:
Employeeid and a field call lastandfirstmiddlename
the form will presently move to the first of the numbers but will not allow me to type another number if I do it moves in this example.
24232 it will move to the beginning of the 2's but if I type the 4 it moves to the 4's.  I also need the ability for the information to select the correct record and if I move to the next record for the combobox search to update to the record as I page through them. I need the ability to go to a blank record and then have it add a record that I type into the form the search combobox is on.  Got any ideals or examples that I can get.

If the bound column is the ID then typematic should work, and will find 2, 24, 24.. etc.
The second column has the text data. and col widths both have to be > 0

Is col 1 (ID) sorted in the query?
