I have this code in the oncurrent event of a form;

    If Me.cboHBA1Code <> DLookup("[CodeAbbreviation]", "tblTreatmentCodes", "[CodeAbbreviation]= 'R'") Then
        Me.cboHBA1Code.ForeColor = vbRed
        Me.cboHBA1Code.FontBold = True
        Else
        Me.cboHBA1Code = vbBlack
        Me.cboHBA1Code.FontBold = False
    End If

Open in new window


But there are 8 different "acceptable" codes in tblTreatmentCodes.  I tried replacing the "R" with '*' as a wildcard but that doesn't work.

Do I have to do a DLookup on all eight so the code looks like:

    If Me.cboHBA1Code <> DLookup("[CodeAbbreviation]", "tblTreatmentCodes", "[CodeAbbreviation]= 'R'") OR <> DLookup("[CodeAbbreviation]", "tblTreatmentCodes", "[CodeAbbreviation]= 'O'") OR <> DLookup("[CodeAbbreviation]", "tblTreatmentCodes", "[CodeAbbreviation]= 'C'") OR <> DLookup("[CodeAbbreviation]", "tblTreatmentCodes", "[CodeAbbreviation]= 'NM'") OR <> DLookup("[CodeAbbreviation]", "tblTreatmentCodes", "[CodeAbbreviation]= 'D'") OR <> DLookup("[CodeAbbreviation]", "tblTreatmentCodes", "[CodeAbbreviation]= 'X'") OR <> DLookup("[CodeAbbreviation]", "tblTreatmentCodes", "[CodeAbbreviation]= 'H'") OR <> DLookup("[CodeAbbreviation]", "tblTreatmentCodes", "[CodeAbbreviation]= 'Ref'") Then
        Me.cboHBA1Code.ForeColor = vbRed
        Me.cboHBA1Code.FontBold = True
        Else
        Me.cboHBA1Code = vbBlack
        Me.cboHBA1Code.FontBold = False
    End If

Try this:
If Me.cboHBA1Code <> DLookup("[CodeAbbreviation]", "tblTreatmentCodes", "[CodeAbbreviation]= '" & Me.cboHBA1Code & "'") Then
        Me.cboHBA1Code.ForeColor = vbRed
        Me.cboHBA1Code.FontBold = True
        Else
        Me.cboHBA1Code = vbBlack
        Me.cboHBA1Code.FontBold = False
End if

use this codes instead

select case Me.cboHBA1Code
       Case "R","O","C","NM","D","X","H","Ref"
        Me.cboHBA1Code.ForeColor = vbRed
        Me.cboHBA1Code.FontBold = True

       Case Else
        Me.cboHBA1Code = vbBlack
        Me.cboHBA1Code.FontBold = False
end select

For some reason that code is turning the data into a 0 (zero).  It is really a R in the table.

Using Rey's code...  (note that the logic was reversed.  If the data is "R", "O", "C", "NM", "D", "X", "H", or "Ref" then it should be vbBlack and FontBold = False)

But if the data is not "R", "O", "C", "NM", "D", "X", "H", or "Ref" then the form shows "255"

????

Here is what I have now...

   
Select Case Me.cboHBA1Code
        Case "R", "O", "C", "NM", "D", "X", "H", "Ref"
        Me.cboHBA1Code.ForeColor = vbBlack
        Me.cboHBA1Code.FontBold = False
        Case Else
        Me.cboHBA1Code = vbRed
        Me.cboHBA1Code.FontBold = True
    End Select

Me.cboHBA1Code = vbBlack
should be
Me.cboHBA1Code.ForeColor = vbBlack

vbBlack = 0.  That is why the field value is being changed to 0.  Fix the typo and the problem will go away.
