Thou Shalt Abhor The Use Of Lookup Fields (But....)

Hi Guys,

I don't want to break the Second Commandment but I also don't want to bloat my application with a whole bunch of repeated code.

Here's the problem. I have a form where, for four different entries in three different areas (so 12 combo boxes) I want to offer the operator the same choices AND want them to be able to add to the list of choices AND want the new choices to be available in all of the combo boxes.......

No... Wait...I got it!

Isn't it amazing that when you force yourself to think through the problem so you can describe it clearly enough for someone else to understand, the solution often presents itself?

I'll still read any replies with interest, but please don't anyone put themselves out because I'm moderately happy with what I am going to do.

Thanks
JustJim

An interestingly expressed question Jim :D
Perhaps, if you get time, you can share your solution with us. I didn't quite get the question myself, but I would be interested in reading the solution nevertheless (and that may help me understand better the original problem).

BTW. I checked up your link (The Ten Commandments of Access) and I'm not sure Nico would support that particular one ;)
