Access Novice....I have a simple form/database. I have a combo box [VEHICLE] with 2 possible values CAR or TRUCK and these are simply typed into the ROW SOURCE, no table lookup. I have a text field [COST], I want this field to auto populate based on the combo box choice. For example IF VEHICLE = CAR let COST = $45.00, IF VEHICLE = TRUCK let COST = $150.00. Noting complicated, I've read I can do this if I create a table with 2 columns and do a lookup, etc but I am hoping since I just have 2 possible choices I could do it a lot easier.
thx experts...Bob R

use the afterupdate event of the combo box

private sub vehicle_afterupdate()

select case me.vehicle
    case "Car"
   me.cost="$45.00"
    case "Truck"
   me.cost="$150.00"

    case else
end select

end sub

You could go to the on after update property of the combo box and do a case statement:

Select Case [combo]

Case 1

me.txtCost = "$45.00"

Case 2

me.txtCost = $150.00

End Select
