combo box

P: 65
i am trying to get a form to autoupdate whenever an employee leaves the company. when the employee leaves, the "enddate" box is filled in with their last day and a combo box is to be filled in saying "no" for currently employed.

i am wondering how to get the combobox to automatically go to "no" when the enddate is filled in and "yes" when the enddate is empty

any and all ideas/solutions/suggestions appreciated

this is how you do it:

Sub YourTextControl_AfterUpdate( )
If IsNull(Me!YourTextControl) or Len(ME!YourTextControl)<1 Then
Me!YourComboControlName = "No"
Me!YourComboControlName = "Yes"
End If
End Sub
Of course have the combo control default to "no" for new records
