The Coder Wrote this project For Tracking Roofing Bids
I am trying to add functionality to do track all kinds of bids eg; Kitchen remodle, New Fence bids etc
I have added a combobox where a user can enter these bids titles eg;Kitchen remodle, New Fence bids etc
I have ran into an issue when trying to save these new titles the problem is this:
I need to reset the udt's add company when a new title is saved. There is a function Add_Company that does this.
For instance:
Roofing Bids
Has 3 companies names and info in a udt
When a different cbo title(new fence or ?) is made then the company name and info should not be to the list of roofers
I think the RoofingCompany udt need to be emptied. How can this be done ?

You either attached the wrong project or it is missing a form or module because there is no Add_Company function or RoofingCompany in the project.

Looking at an older version of your project I see that RoofingCompany is an array. Do you want to empty the whole array? If so then you can simply do ReDim RoofCompany(0) which will leave you with one, blank, array member.

Here's an article that may help.

Thanks martinLiss
whoops uploaded the wrong project
I guess that is what needs to be done. what i have ran into:
Project has 3 roofing companies with all their data.
ABC Roofing
John Doe Roofing
Bills Roofing
I add a new Bid Type say Bathroom remodle with a new company(Joes Bathrooms) and click save or add
I am ending up with:
ABC Roofing
John Doe Roofing
Bills Roofing
Joes Bathrooms this should not be include with roofing Bids
So if its a new Bid Type added to the cbo
This will fix it
ReDim RoofCompany(0)

I can't really tell because I don't know your project well enough, but doing ReDim RoofCompany(0) will wipe out everything in RoofCompany, so if that's what you want to have happen then you should do it.
