Your question is so vague. What do you expect to see on a sub form?

I assume your search button should search comboboxes for a search value.

Where search value will be entered.

Are you comfortable in using APIs for example SendMessage API.

This API searches a combobox and finds closest match.

How would I allow the user to enter lower case letters. How could I do it so it doesn't matter what the user does, as long as the letters are right. CT, ct, Ct, cT should all be allowed, for example.

What if you centered the numbers in the boxes and labels?

Use following to make search case insensitive.

[PHP]Lcase(Trim(Combobox1.text))[/PHP]


Good Luck.
