Combo Box Wizard Options

P: n/a
In the combo box wizard there are typically 3 options, the last one
being to find a record based on the selction in the combo box.
Nevertheless, sometimes when I try to add a combo box the third option
is not present. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

That option is only offered for bound forms.

Thanks. How do I make a find box like that to a form that is not
bound?

That option searches the Recordset that the form is bound to and then navigates
the form to the first record satisfying the search. If the form is not bound
then there are no records to search.
