Ms Access Properties - Events

P: 133
I am trying to execute an event procedure after the user selects a drop-down off of an Access form. I have tried:

- on exit
- after update

Looking for some suggestions...

Actually, the Combobox AfterUpdate is the usual event to use. Using the OnChange is fine until the user goes to type something into the Combobox, as when using the AutoExpand feature to find an item in the box. In that case your code will fire after each character is entered.

What exactly are you trying to do after a selection is made and what code is being used?
