After update for combo box

I have a combo box that is based on the value entered in the field above it. It is only working if I hit Shift F9 to update it.

Is there a way to do an "After Update" event that will update the combo query after a value is entered. That way the combo underneath it has the right choices without hitting Shift F9.

Thanks!

If the combo is using a query with criteria as a rowsource and the criteria points to a control on the form, you need code to force the query to run in the AfterUpdate event of the field used as criteria.

You could requery the second combo form the AfterUpdate event of the first:

Sub FirstCombo_AfterUpdate()
  Me.SecondCombo.Requery
End Sub
