Hello,
Could someone tell me what this line of code is doing? Escpecially the "id_dictionary_data" part.

rsdata.Filter = "id_dictionary_data = " & Trim(Str(CboHeaderFields.ItemData(CboHeaderFields.ListIndex)))

Its filtering the recordset to only show values where the "id_dictionary_data" column's value is equal to whatever value is in the CboHeaderFields.ListIndex variable. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee275540(v=bts.10).aspx for more info.

more info on the id_dictionary_data?
id_dictionary_data is a field in the rsdata record source.  You are filtering records.

Correction on the kaufmed comment...you are looking at the CboHeaderFields.ItemData value of the currently selected item in the combobox.  ItemData is a long integer value, so I would expect that id_dictionary_data is a long integer data type.  Also, this statement does not add any delimiters around the value, so it isn't expecting a string or date data type.

It's just a column name, so I would start with the query that populates the recordset.
