Hi All,

I am trying to build a Microsoft web database to automate some of the tasks in our team.

In the process, I am facing some issues in creating temp variable and storing the value of combobox in the variable. The process followed by me is as below:

On the Combobox After Update event, run macro SetTempVar Name : LocationCombo Expression = [Combo0]

MessageBox [TempVars]![Combo0]

I am trying to run the message box to see if the variable is captured correctly but it throws the expression (TempVars!Combo0) as a string instead.

Appreciate if someone can help on the query.
