    Unanswered: Combo Box Other

    Hey Everyone,

    I'm working on something where I have a combo box that pulls from a table with a list of choices. One of these choices is "Other".

    What I'd like to have happen is when the user selects "Other" (on Update?) it unlocks another field or sets the field to .visible so that an "other" value can be entered.

    Any ideas? Would it be better to lock the text field or to have it appear?

    Thanks to all.

    You said: "...when the user selects "Other" (on Update?)..."

    --> After Update

    If you mean that you want the user to be able to enter a new value into the list, then that is a bit more complicated. if you just want to see another control, i would go with .viisble.

    Yes, that's correct...After Update (my syntax error). No, they don't need to add it to the list immediately. I have a separate table with the values for the Combo Box and the "Other" values can be updated in that table if the User/Admin sees fit.

    Thanks for the advice.
