For the life of me I can't figure out why a continuous form sub-form is doing this.  Here is a screen shot of it...

subform
And here is a screen shot of the actual data...

table data
And here is my afterupdate (and oncurrent code)...

Private Sub cboMedID_AfterUpdate()
    
    Me.txtMedGenericName = Me.cboMedID.Column(2)

End Sub

Open in new window


I've done this countless times before but am perplexed!

Try setting the control source of txtMedGenericName to

=cboMedID.Column(2)

... and remove your after update and on current code that sets the value of txtMedGenericName.

Perfect!  But I can't see why my way wasn't working.  It has in the past.  I must be missing something.

Well, if you are setting the value of an unbound control on a continuous form, then all of the continuous form fields in that column get the value. When you bind the control, then it looks to the record related to the continuous form row. That's how I see it. Maybe others will have a better explanation of what is going on.
