Adding combo box to an existing form

P: 19
Hello all,

I'm having an issue adding more combo box to an existing form, please correct me if I'm wrong in my method but i'm copying the combo box above and pasting it below so to have the same format as the others and to minimize my efforts. The form has a subform so i'm creating the same for that form also but after all is said and done it doen not display on the main form. What am I doing wrong.

It's not behind another control is it? What about the code and/or macros? Maybe one of them is changing the settings. Either its position or its visibility.

If by this you mean that you're copying a combobox from the Header section of your form (above) and pasting it into the Detail section of your form (below) you have to be sure and do two things.

After selecting and copying the combobox, click on the Detail section.

Click on Paste to place it on the Detail Section.

At this point the combobox is not visible! I think this is where you're at.

Now, holding down the <Control> key use the <Down Arrow> key to bring the combobox into view. It should first become visible in the top left hand portion of the Detail section.

I first noticed this peculiarity a number of years ago when I first dabbling in the black arts of Access!

Not necessaryly the header section but within the same form, precisely the combobox above.
