Combo Box to help find form

I am trying to enter custom names in a combo box and have it go to that customer after it is updated. The combo box has a row source which is a query that lists all the customers as either Last, First or First Last.

I can't get the after up date to work properly. I have using the below after update. Any idea how I can get it to work?

Private Sub cbo_ContactFind_AfterUpdate()

    With Me.RecordsetClone
        .FindFirst "[CustomerID] = " & Me.cbo_ContactFind
        If .NoMatch = False Then
            Me.Bookmark = .Bookmark
        Else
             MsgBox "Contact not found!"
        End If
    End With

End Sub

Your AfterUPdate code looks about right, so long as the [CustomerID] field is numeric.  So my guess is there is something wrong with your query.  When using this technique, my query looks like:

SELECT CustomerID, NameFull
FROM (
SELECT 1 as SortOrd, CustomerID, [NameLast] & (", " + [NameFirst]) as NameFull
FROM yourTable
UNION ALL
Select 2 as SortOrd, CustomerID, [NameFirst] & " " & [NameLast] as NameFull
) as Customers
ORDER BY Customers.SortOrd, Customers.NameFull

That way, the bound column of the combo box is the CustomerID, you can set its width to zero but refer to it as indicated in your code.

If the customerID is not numeric, simply try:

        .FindFirst "[CustomerID] = " & chr$(34) & Me.cbo_ContactFind & chr$(34)

This will wrap the value that is in the combo box in quotes.
