    Combo Box (Access 2003)

    How some one can help me. I have a table of State Postal codes and State Name. Now I use this in my Combo Boxes for adding State to Name and Address screens. The combo boxes work on my computer and five of my customer's computers. However, two of my customer's computers bring up blank lists. Now all computers except mine are pointing to the same table, and the table that the computers are linked to, has the data. But two computers can not bring up a state name using the same forms on all computers. Question - is there something in Access that can cause a combo box to work or not work? Since every thing is the same, but for Access loaded on to a computer. Is there some option, check box or such that can effect the way a combo box will work okay on one computer and not on another, using the same table data and forms, queries and reports????

    Do the problem PCs have Access 2003 SP3? There was a problem with combo boxes in that service pack. This can be solved by downloading and installing the Access 2003 post-Service Pack 3 hotfix package: December 18, 2007.
