two questions- dynamic form controls and list boxes

P: 9
hi!!

i just started with access for my job in a small translation agency,

i have a form where i can select a language combination, based on the combination i want to load a list of corresponding translators in a list box within the same form.

i got it working as far as that my list box gets me the right data when i start the form having set a default value for the language combination, but when i change the language combination, the list box stays the same it doesn't get updated

when i press F5, the language combination is set to the default value so it doesnt change the list box either

many thanks to all of you!!

ps: only one question ;-)

oh i'm using access 2007

You could try refreshing the form after changing the language combination.
This should update the listbox with modified data.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Me.Refresh
  2.  
Hope this Helps,
