    Exclamation Unanswered: Trying to Find Record - Combo Box Not Working

    I have a form - Invoice form and when a user clicks the add button, it adds a new record, no problem there but now the user wants to have a combo box that pulls from the customer table, select the customer by ID and Name and that fills in the customer information on the Invoice Form..

    I can't get it to work, the code I have is below and it will only find the First Invoice ID, does not do what I want...

    Code behind Find Customer ID - Combo Box:

    Private Sub FindCust_AfterUpdate()

    Me.RecordsetClone.FindRec "[Cust ID] = " & Str(Me![FindCust])
    Me.Bookmark = Me.RecordsetClone.Bookmark

    Mainform_Lock False

    End Sub

    Any suggestions?

    Not really enough information here to give you a definit answer to your problem but perhaps guide you towards the solution.

    First you will need to set up the combobox located within the Invoice form so that is will display the required data (Customer ID and Customer Name). This is relatively easy to do with the query builder.

    Now...In the OnClick event of the ComboBox (which, by the way, is fired when a user selects the customer name) you need to enter code so as to fill in the pertinent areas of your Invoice. Perhaps something like:

    Me.CustomerID = Me.myComboBox.Column(0)
    Me.CustomerName = Me.myComboBox.Column(1)
    Me.CustomerAddress = Me.myComboBox.Column(2)

    If your invoice is being generated from stored data (puchases made for example) then you would use the bound information located within the combobox within the query that generates that very invoice.

    Look at the way you're calling it:

    You are trying to pass a string as criteria to a number field. You either need to drop the Str, or use LIKE.

    Me.RecordsetClone.FindRec "[Cust ID] LIKE '" & Me![FindCust] &"'"
    Me.RecordsetClone.FindRec "[Cust ID] = " & Me![FindCust]
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.
