    Allow Edits - Combo (A2k)

    I could have sworn there was an "Allow Edits = No" property for a combo.

    I use a combo whose datasource is from a sensitive ODBC (Via Query) using the "Find Record On My Form" method.
    We had a hiccup yesterday where a user used his back space key and lost a record number. When I lock the combo control, the user can't select a record.

    ???

    Re: Allow Edits - Combo (A2k)

    A combo box used to search for records should be unbound, i.e. its control source should be blank. Hitting backspace in the combo box will only clear the combo box, but have no effect on the table.
