    combo box (xp)

    The combo box I am using saves a selection to the form the combo box is bound to. Does anyone have an idea how I could save it *also* in another table, for future use? The reason I want it to go there *also* is: if I simply save to another table (without saving to the combo box table), I can't use the *Merge to a .doc* feature that binds the Word document to the table that my combo box is bound to. That bound table has the names and addresses of my contacts, etc. in it. So I feel it must be used.

    Can you be a bit more specific.
    Why do you need to store the same data in two tables. In any case, why not set up another mail merge and use the second table as the data source?

    I'm with Rob - we need a bit more info. I think a Word merge driven from an Access parameter query might well do exactly what you want to do, but until I know a bit more about your objectives there may be a very good reason that won't work.
