Cannot assign a value to this object.

P: 3
I have two comboboxes in an unbound field:
[Vendor] - finds Vendor ID, and from this list
[Application] finds Application ID using Vendor ID as the filter.

The application details are populated in a subform bound to a query "Find Application" based on a single table and the two tables are linked by Application ID.

The form is designed to enter or edit application details ie if I can't find the Application in the second combobox I add it into the subform.

My problem is that when I go to enter any details (into any field) I get an error message "You cannot assign a value to this object". The object may be: a control on a readonly form (not), on a form that is open in design view (no), too large for this field (no).

If I clear the error message, I can proceed to enter data. It seems to be due to the fact that the [Application ID] in the subform is an Autonumber. I have read other postings and enforced referential integrity etc but this has had no effect.

Does anybody have any ideas for a solution?

When You enter the data in your combos is the keys of your form are updated?

The first thing that you should be sure is the update of the keys!
