Access Tip: Combo Box Edit List Items
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   11/12/2012 2:51:58 PM

See, even I learn something new almost every day while working with Access. Here's a cool feature I just discovered that they added to Access in 2007 that allows you to add or edit items in a Combo Box or List Box without any programming, and without having to close and reopen the form.

Calendar Seminar Lookup Table Link

I got the Lookup table figured out. I changed the textbox to a combo box and made it a value list.
What I am trying to do now is create a passdown schedule.
This consists of a pre-schdule of parts that other departments will select from an inventory and put into 7 tables. I will then look at these 7 tables and put them in order of priority to go through what we call out Shared Services Areas. which is where the 7 tables come in. I will also need to establish a completed check box so that if the part was not completed it automatically goes onto the next days passdown. Read More...

I think you advised us some time ago that this would be the easier way to go about incrementing combo boxes...just add a command button to open a form, add the data, then refresh the form.  Easier than going through a record set. Read More...
