i want to give facility to the user that he can choose the particular record into combobox, listbox, textbox, wat he entered and choose according to it own

Ahhh... Youngling you see now the error of your ways and you've returned to us from the darkside.... allow me to show you the power of:Filtering on a Form and the most awsome force of the Cascadeded Form Filtering

There are of course the ways of parent-child-subforms and other more powerfull methods of GUI that we can teach you; however, those become a new thread and new answers.

I am having problems trying to print a report based on a form. This is a search form only, no data input. There is a query that the form looks at, but then there are numerous comboxes that you can pick information from either one or many and press a search button.

I have a combobox displaying the full name of a customer (e.g. John Smith) and would like to go to the LAST name whenever a user presses a key while on this combobox. I have looked at the AutoCompleteMode and AutoCompleteSource properties of the combobox, but they only key off of the FIRST name (e.g. pressing "B" will select "Bob Smith", not "Sam Barnes"). Even FindString and FindStringExact only appear to key off of the prefix. This...
