    text box control source

    I hope I can explain this right. I have a form made that fills a table from some combo boxes and some list boxes. So the table has some combo boxes on it to. I am trying to make a read only copy of the page by setting up 1 combo box that looks up that table for job name. And setting up the rest with text boxes that will show a tool name with their control sourcees set to =jobname.column(2) or 3 depending where they are in the row source. job name is the combo box name. I am putting what I want to be shown in the text box in the row source of the combo box. What I am actually getting is the ID umber that corisponds to the tool in the original table and not the toolname itself.

    This link should help explain the proper usage of combo boxes.
