Small DB example attached.

Combo box on subform updates records in conjuction  records in main form "frmInvoice" except for the  last record in combo box "222211111242"
If record "222211111242" is chosen for a second time it updates to the correct record.

Tried Me.Combo15.Requery in various places but not working.

Private Sub Combo15_AfterUpdate()
 
    Me.RecordsetClone.FindFirst "[ShipmentID] = " & Me![Combo15]
    If Not Me.RecordsetClone.NoMatch Then
        Me.Bookmark = Me.RecordsetClone.Bookmark
        Else
        Me.Parent.RecordsetClone.FindFirst "[InvoiceNumber] = " & Me.Combo15.Column(1)
            If Not Me.Parent.RecordsetClone.NoMatch Then
                Me.Parent.Bookmark = Me.Parent.RecordsetClone.Bookmark
                Else
                MsgBox "Record Not found!"
            End If
    End If

End Sub

It was not the only selection.
First find the invoice, then the shipment.
Here is how:
Private Sub Combo15_AfterUpdate()
 
    Dim rst         As DAO.Recordset
    Dim InvoiceID   As Long
    Dim ShipmentID  As Long
    
    InvoiceID = Val(Me!Combo15.Column(1))
    ShipmentID = Val(Me!Combo15.Value)
    
    If Me.Parent.InvoiceNumber.Value <> InvoiceID Then
        Set rst = Me.Parent.RecordsetClone
        rst.FindFirst "[InvoiceNumber] = " & InvoiceID & ""
        If Not rst.NoMatch Then
            ' This will requery this subform.
            Me.Parent.Bookmark = rst.Bookmark
        End If
    End If
    
    If Me!InvoiceNumber.Value = Me.Parent.InvoiceNumber.Value Then
        Set rst = Me.RecordsetClone
        rst.FindFirst "[ShipmentID] = " & ShipmentID & ""
        If Not rst.NoMatch Then
            Me.Bookmark = rst.Bookmark
        End If
    End If
    
    If Me!ShipmentID.Value <> ShipmentID Then
        MsgBox "Record Not found!"
    End If
    
    Set rst = Nothing

End Sub

Both work great. Thank You Rey and Gustav.

Thanks again to Rey as it was his original code I was using. Interesting how this unusual problem can be solved two totally different ways.
