    Continuous Forms (Access 2003)

    I have two combo boxes on a continuous form. I would like for the selections of the second to be dependant on the first. I have set the row source of the second to use the value of the first as a criteria in the query.

    The problem is when I choose a new value on one row of the form, all the rows change.
    I know there should be a way to do this, I just have not found it so far.


    Ideas???


    Thanks
    Richard

    Re: Continuous Forms (Access 2003)

    In a setup with cascading combo boxes, as they are called, the first combo box is usually unbound (i.e. its control source is blank). In a continuous form, this will cause the combo box to act the same for all displayed records. The thread starting ar <post#=340270>post 340270</post#> describes a way to get around this, by placing a text box on top of the combo box.
