    Question Unanswered: How to enter data as a number but it will code to combo box listing?

    Hello Everyone,

    I am trying to code my combo boxes to accept a number and then show it as it is in the list. Example County is Alachua, but will be entered as 11, or 09 for September... How to I set it to know that a entry of 09 will display September?

    Thanks in advance..
    Chris

    Combo Look

    Have a look at the form called: CountyComboBoxSample in this attachment. It uses 2 different samples.

    column widths 0; 2cm
    column count 2
    bound column 1
    rowsource valuelist (could also be a table)
    1; "January", 2, "February", and so on
    (my airport 30 minute WLAN is about to expire - don't have time to lookup if the value list should be , or ; separated: help will help)

    type or select or retrieve a 2
    ...it shows February

    first non-zero-width column is displayed in a non-dropped-down combo.
