Populate ComboBox from results of another combobox...

This actually stemmed from anther post I created.

But, I have two combo boxes. ComboBox1 is populated by a list of Systems
(DataSet from Oracle Query).

Now, I want to take Combobox2, and when the data is changed on Combox1, I
want to populate data depending on the selection in Combox1.

So, ComboBox1 lists "OracleDB12 3". I want ComboBox2 to list all accounts on
that system. That information is stored in say the Accounts
table(AccountNa me).

If your Combobox1 is bound to a DataSource, Combobox control has a
"DataSourceChan ged" event that may let you know when the source is
changed. Also (sometimes not an efficent idea), you can use a timer
control to check combobox1's items collection within specified

I'm trying to populate a ComboBox (dropdown style) with strings of text from an ArrayList. The ComboBox is actually being populated with the correct items, however, they appear only as blank entries on the drop down list. When I click on one of the blank entries, the editable region displays the correct text, and subsequent functions relying on this string execute properly. My question is why can't I see any of the values that have been...

Hi. New member here Im sat at work, pounding my head off the desk because this tiny bit of simple code refuses to work.

This is bizarre... Im having problems with the combobox AfterUpdate event: Im running Access 2003. I created an unbound combobox with 3 columns on a form. The Row Source is from a table.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
