    Eureka! I have found it! (Access (All))

    This is a followup to my previous post about an unusual behavior in comboboxes in which use of the .dropdown method in the OnEnter event would cause the dropdown to close if the user hit the combobox's dropdown-arrow symbol instead of tabbing into the control.

    As it turns out, this only happens if the combobox is sitting directly on a tab page! (it doesn't happen if the combo is in a subform sitting on the tab page.) The attached db has a single form that demonstrates this. Notice that it doesn't matter where the focus is prior to click on the combobox; it can be on the tab or outside it. The combobox on the tab always demonstrates this odd behavior if the dropdown arrow is clicked.

    Very interesting, thanks for sharing this. I noticed that the anomaly only occurs if you click the dropdown arrow, not if you click in the text box portion of the combo box - the list stays open as intended then.

    Now if I can only figure out a way to report this to Microsoft. I thought there used to be a way to do that, but I couldn't seem to find it now. I guess they figure that problems with their software occurs so rarely, that they don't need a set procedure to report it!

    I was there before, but it seemed to be mostly a "what I want to see" type of submittal. I thought there used to be a specific place to report bugs (with questions such as "can you duplicate the problem", etc.), but I can't find it anymore.

    I don't see a specific place for reporting bugs either. The MSWish page may be the best you can do.
