When the NotInList event fires, I use the NewData and DAO's SEEK command to see if the NewData exists in a table. If so, I want to suppress error messages from ACCESS, and I want to requery the combo box and have NEWDATA displayed in the dropdown list.
The query which supplies the fields in the drop down list is based on the contents of a text box ("CustShortName"). When the SEEK is successful, I store in the text box the value which should cause the requery to be successful. I'm missing something, because the combo boxes drop down list is empty and I get the standard ACCESS error about the string not being in the list.
After SEEKing NEWDATA and putting the correct data in "CustShortName", I set Response = acDataErrAdded and exit the NotInList event. Help, anyone?
