Combo Box Selection

P: n/a
Hi,
When I make a selection from the drop down list of values on a Combo
Box.

The Combo Box is on a Form.

The Combo Box selection appears on ALL of the records.

That is, when I select one value from the Combo Box that value appears
in the Combo Box on all the records regardless of what record I am
viewing on my Form!

How do I fix this?

Thank you!

You most likely are doing this with a continuous form or datasheet. And
the combo has a filter specific to that record.

Remove the filter (most likely that won't be acceptable) or else display
the data only and use a Dbl-click event to open up a form that will
present a drop down filtered for that specific record.

BTW, the data in all the other records doesn't change...but it would be
disconcerting to the user.
