I have an Access ComboBox  with the name Manufacturer_Combo and the record source SELECT t_Manufacturer.Manufacturer, t_Manufacturer.Country
FROM t_Manufacturer;
I have a text box with the control source =[Manufacturer_Combo].[column](1)
I am getting an error #Name? in the text box and I can't work out why

Try this as ControlSource

Open in new window

There must be an equal sign included in the controlsource, as the first character.
