Hi Richard, I have followed the search seminar and I cant get the combo box on customer form to work, does it have anything to do with the version of access (O365)

Many thanks

Combo box search works fine on o365. What error are you getting? Rewatch and check yours.

Combo boxes haven't changed much in years. Try a new blank database. Also check the Troubleshooter.

Thanks Adam/Richard for the prompt reply, what I discovered was if I open Customer form via the CustomerList form it does not work but if I open Customer form directly it doesn't, and I would like Customer for to be open only via the CustomerList. Does its have to do with the fact I used 2 diferent queries, one for the CustomerF and one for the CustomerFilterCombo.  Any tips?

What is the error you are getting though? Does it say anything?

I'm just assuming your problem is your customerlist has an openform where ID="&ID so when it opens the form, its filtered to be a 1 of 1 record. Nothing to search with.

You can get around it by instead of doing openform with a where clause, using recordsets, which you learn about in the more advanced courses.

    DoCmd.OpenForm "FormName"
    Forms!FormName.Form.Recordset.FindFirst "ID=" & ID
