Hi,

See attached simple database.

Customers place orders for car parts!

1.  Run frmHeader which has a subform frmDetail.
2. Choose a customer from frmHeader
3. Now choose a part from frmDetail  (Important: this is a continuous form)
4. So far so good!

Requirement: In the frmDetail - note the two yellow text boxes.   How do I populate these yellow boxes with tblParts.Price and tblParts.Colour

(Obviously, the price & colour are for display only and not stored in the tblOrderDetail)

1. Change the rowsource of Combo0 to:

SELECT tblParts.CarPartID, tblParts.PartDescription, tblParts.PartPrice, tblParts.PartColour FROM tblParts;

2. Change columncount of Combo0 to 4.
3. Add two more column widths - both of 0 (zero) - to ColumnWidths of Combo0.

4. Use as ControlSource for your two yellow textboxes:

    =[Combo0].[column](2)
and
    =[Combo0].[column](3)
