    Default Record List Combo Box

    I'm having a big problem with the Record List Combo Box. I've seen other threads where others are complaining about this, but they seem to emanate from an XDialog.

    I have a set of students from several years. The Parent table has one field called ClassYear. Each year is in the form of 2001-2002, 2002-2003, 2003-2004. The child database is the list of students belonging to that year. In order to look at each year's students, I placed a Record List Combo box at the head of the form for the ClassYear field from the Parent dbf. The idea was to select the year and the list of students would change underneath.

    However what I am getting is the Record List Combo control inserting blanks into my database, then showing no records and other irregular behaviour.

    Is this a glitch, problem or bug, or am I doing something wrong here?

    Thanks,

    Charlie

    Default RE: Record List Combo Box

    Just as an addendum, I just tried to solve this problem by adding a browse for the ClassYear rather than using the Record List Combo Box. This lookup works fine and does what it is supposed to do.

    Why won't the combo box work the same way?
