    Combo Box problem

    Hi all,

    I have a combo box field in a table that gets its data from another table. My problem is that when I click on the combo box field only the Index field in the table is displayed, and not the data I need in the field next to it.

    Anyone know where my problem might be?

    Thanks heaps.

    Bill,

    Two things I can think of:
    1. Column Width of the table item is not wide enough to display both columns of the lookup table.

    2. You haven't set the properties values for column count & column widths.

    RG, thank you so much. My problem was a combination of both! You are great.

    As you can see I am learning, so you may well be seeing a bit of me here.

    Thanks and all the best.
