Hello experts,

I have a combo box (cboFacilityType) on a form (underlying table and field: tblDraws_Details.FacilityType) and after I update cboFacilityType I need to update another field in the same record (tblDraws_Details.ID_facility)  but I need to update to the same value where tblFacilityCommitments.FacilityType=tblDraws_Details.FacilityType)

I basically I need to update [tblDraws_Details.ID_facility] where [tblFacilityCommitments.FacilityType = tblDraws_Details.FacilityType

I think it would look something like this (but it it doesnt update to anything) :
FYI:  

Private Sub cboFacilityType_AfterUpdate()

    Me.ID_facility = DLookup("FacilityType", "tblFacility_Commitments", "FacilityType=" & [FacilityType].Value & "")
                                                                                                                                                     '   ^^^possibly facilitytype.column(1)-didnt work tho
End Sub

Possibly InsertInto would be another way to do this instead of dlookup because I believe Dlookup slows the db.
thank you
