Anchor Items at Top of a Combo Box in Microsoft Access


 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, you will learn how to anchor specific items, such as United States, Canada, and the UK, at the top of a combo box. This expert-level guide covers setting up a custom sort order, creating relational combo boxes, and essential database design practices for optimized data entry.

Patrick from Hoffman Estates, Illinois (a Platinum Member) asks: My company does business in many different countries, and to keep the data proper, we have our employees pick from a list of countries instead of typing them in. Although we do leave in other options for those rare new countries that pop up, the vast majority of our customers are in the United States, Canada, and the UK. Is there any way to keep those three items at the top of the combo box rather than have my people have to either type or scroll all the way down the list?

Members

In the extended cut, we will learn how to hide the text box for typing in a country name unless the user selects 'Other' from the combo box. I will show you how to add separators in the combo box and update the invoice to reflect either the selected country name or any custom entry typed in.
