    Unanswered: ControlTip Text

    Is it possible to get the value of a combo box column to show in the controltip text when a user hovers over the combo?

    Everytime I try with code like =CboList.Column(3) it just displays that rather than the value.

    Try this....

    Add the following code to the form;

    Private Sub Combo0_Change()
    Me.Combo0.ControlTipText = Nz(Me.Combo0.Value, "TBD")
    End Sub

    Private Sub Form_Current()
    Me.Combo0.ControlTipText = Nz(Me.Combo0.Value, "TBD")
    End Sub

    When the form first loads and you hover over the combo it will display 'TBD'.
    The code will display whatever the bound column of the combo box is once something has been selected.
