    Unanswered: Combo box with multiple entries and limit to list

    Hello there,

    I have a combo box which takes it's values from a table. I need this combo box to allow the user to select multiple items and also enter it their own item should it not appear in the list. I have the option for allow multiple items set to yes and the limit to list set to no, however everytime I put this combo box onto a form and try to enter text nothing will enter, I just get the default windows error sound. Is there something obvious I could be doing wrong (I am assuming you can use the multiple items option at the same time as turning limit to list off)?

    Any help would be greatfully received.

    Warm regards.

    I was not aware of the fact that a ComboBox would take more than one selection at a time.

    Me either. I thought that only listboxes could do that.
