I am using Access 97. I have a customer table including address. I want to create a reservation form that automatically inserts the appropriate address (from the customer table) once a customer has been selected. Please help

The customer will be selectd from a combobox, so in your combo box as a second column you need to add the information for the adress

In your combo box as After Update you assign Event procedure

Me![YourAdressField]=Me![YourCombo].column(1)

Remember to change the column count property in your combo box!

Best regards!

In the default value property of the control for the address put the following:

If the customer control on the form is an ID (Number)
DLookup("[AddressField]", "CustomerTable", "[CustomerField]=" & Me.CustomerControl

If the customer control on the form is text
DLookup("[AddressField]", "CustomerTable", "[CustomerField]='" & Me.CustomerControl & "'"
