Combo Box Help w/ Access

P: 13
Hello All,

I am hoping someone can help me. I am VERY new at programming.

I am trying to set up a form that i can click the drop down on one combo box and select an item (someones last name) then select their first name from the combo box 2 (first name) and then have all their other information appear in textboxes.

If a new person needs to be added then I would like to be able to type in their information and somehow save it.. I'm assuming i need to use Access somehow

As you can tell I am very new, I tried searching everyone elses combobox stuff but it all seemed very advanced,

I'm hoping for the baby steps,

Thanks
GREG

you need to have table of the information of your existing person who listed,

First you need to learn SQL here is the best site www.w3schools.com

Hi,

If you want to store the details into the database (access), You should have fair knowledge of ADO(ActiveX Data Object).

TRy this book"Develop an inventory Management application using vb".
This book is based on Access database.

You can develop a full application using this book.
