I have a combo field (cmbProduct) which I would like to fill with values from table SHOPITEMS matching a string entered by the user in field xSearch.  For example if the user enters  pants - the system should read table SHOPITEMS and fill cmbProduct slider with all products matching  *pants*.  Thank you for any help... Michael

You can set the RowSource of your combo to do that:

Me.YourCombo.RowSource = "SELECT Field1 FROM ShopItems WHERE SomeField LIKE '*" & Me.txSearch & "*"

Great - however I get a syntax error in the Query. The error msg is !Syntax error in string in query expression '[SHOPITEMS].[PRODUCT] LIKE '*panera*'

I used the following code in the Lost Focus Event:
Me.cmbPrd1.RowSource = "SELECT [SHOPITEMS].[PRODUCT] FROM [SHOPITEMS] WHERE [SHOPITEMS].[PRODUCT] LIKE '*" & Me.xSearch & "*"

Thank you so much for your help..
