using placeholder in memo field

P: 1
I'd like to be able to select a specific word in a drop down menue, then this selected word should show up somwhere within my memo type field where I would have a placeholder e.g. memotext blabla [dropwdownfieldtexthere] memo text continues.
Is that possible?

Yes.

You can use the AfterUpdate event of the combobox to trigger the replacement, and then use the Replace function to search for, and replace the [dropwdownfieldtexthere] within the memo field.

If you need more guidance, you need to provide more details, such as whether the combobox is on the same form as the memo field, whether you want it to work on a per-record basis or for the entire table. Whats the rowsource of the combobox, and so on.
