Auto populate combo box range based upon previous selection

Hello All,

I am a new user to Access. I am currently designing a database
consisting of four tables for multiple users. Rather than bore you
with the goals and such, here is what I am attempting to do:
I have two combo boxes, the first of which contains three text values
(Org 1, Org 2, Org 3) and the second combo box contains a listing of
30 or so clients. I would like to condense the second combo box based
upon the selection of the organization in the first combo box.

For example, if I select "Org 2", I would like it to show the roughly
10 clients that are associated with Org 2 rather than the other 20
clients which do not pertain to that org.

Thanks in advance for the help. Please remember I am a new user to
Access. I realized after reading this forum I will probably be
redesigning soon but would like to solve this issue while it is top of
mind.

There are many ways to skin this cat. Set the source for cb2 to
include a filter on Org where Org =cb1.value. Then requery cb2 when
you change the selected value in cb1. That should be one way to
accomplish it.

Leave the Rowsource property of the second Combo Box blank.

Code the AfterUpdate event of the Combo1 to something like this:

Me![Combo2].Rowsource = "Select TableName.[ClientName] From TableName
Where TableName.Organ ization = '" & Me![Combo1] & "' Order By
[ClientName];"

This assumes the bound column of Combo1 is Text datatype, not Number.

Change the Table and Field names as needed.

Acc97. I have a form which within a subform records machine down time. I have a total of 8 machines. (1-2-3 ect.) What I have been doing is using a combo box linked to the record table to select, the reasons based upon generic terms. The problem is that I have so many records now, that it takes more time looking and picking out the correct fault reason than it does completing the rest of the form!

Hi, I have a problem. I need to auto populate fields based on a value entered in combo box.

It works fine, but I have problem with performance. The source of the combo box is a table from another database that keeps adding up (currently we have around 1500 records, around 5-20 new records...

Hello all, My code can successfully open, write to, format and save several worksheets in a workbook then save it by a given name, close and quit excel.

Following this, I can now see that my combo2 has no previous elements and contains only the elements relevant to selection in combo1. Now, as soon as I select something in combo 2 and go back to change selection in combo1 the combo2 must get its history cleared up (i.e the previous selection in combo2's entry subwidget)
