ComboBox Progressive Requery

Thanks and would like to use your suggested join approach however
tblSub.FieldA is one field of a two field key (2nd key field say FieldB) for
tblSub. So need to exclude tblX.fieldAs in the combo box list only where
there is a saved record in tbl.Sub with the same tblSub.FieldB

Can you help with the join in this case where null case needs to be for both
FieldA and FieldB (or a combined field)

use an outer join.
Say the datasource for the subform is tblSub
Also the rowsource for the combobox is something like
ORDER BY fieldA;

so you just change it a little...
FROM tblX LEFT JOIN tblSub ON tblX.FieldA=tbl Sub.FieldA
WHERE tblSub.FieldA=N ULL

Original post....

Am using a nested continuous bound subform to add multiple records to the
underlying table. One of the fields is based on a limit to list combo box.
Any suggestions on best way to progressively update the combo box query so
that for each new record being entered the combo box list excludes items in
the combo box list previously selected.

Aim is to prevent user from selecting the same combo list item more than
once if the user has already added a record previously using that list item.

The combo box field is part of the primary key for the underlying table and
am currently trapping the duplication error and then getting the user to
re-select a different combo box list item but would prefer removing the
previously selected & saved combo list item from the pick list.

This would allow me to also include logic to exclude mutually exclusive
items as well from the pick list.

Example in summary.

Combo box initial pick list items

To Avoid duplication - if user picks B and record is then saved, pick list
for the next record on the continuous subform becomes
For Mutually exclusive items - want say A & C to be mutually exclusive - if
user picks C and record is saved, pick list for the next record becomes

Any suggestions on best way to handle updating the selection criteria string

TIA, Bob

I have a combobox which is used to select records, which is satisfactory at the moment. However, a second user is going to start using this database and there will be 1600 records. This makes the combobox a little unfeasable as searching through this many names would be difficult and time-consuming. I would like the user to be able to select a group of people from a first combobox, and then when he goes to the second, only the names of

I have a ComboBox, when dblClicked, displays the combobox's row content in a continuous subform. Changes can be made to this content in the subform and then closed.
