Cascading Combo Boxes Comment from Tareq Salloum @ 11/7/2014
Hi Richard,
I created the cascade comboboxes and everything works fine. However, if I navigate to the second record or different record, the values in the combo boxes won't appear in the two combo boxes that are based on the query. I the values do get stored in the table but the combo boxes don't display them. How can I fix that?

Reply from Richard Rost:

Tareq, it's impossible for me to tell what the problem is just from your description. Are you working with CONTINUOUS FORMS? If so, I cannot guarantee that the techniques I show in my classes will work. The cascading combo boxes I use only work with SINGLE FORMS. If you want me or my team to look at your database, you can submit it via the TechHelp page.

Cascading Combo Boxes Comment from Jyotsana Jaswal @ 4/9/2014

I studied the Access 2003 lesson 307 about dynamic combo and created one for my situation as stated in video. But what's happening is combo Box 1 is saving ID instead of its description in the back end table. I am not understanding the reason for it.


Reply from Richard Rost:

You want to store the ID in the table. The description is just for display purposes.
