    Unanswered: Updating Fields on one table from a combo on another Subform

    Hi Evereyone,

    I am working with two Forms from Tables [ProspectUpdate] and [ProspectResult] - [ProspectResult] is a subform on [ProspectUpdate].
    The Field on Form [ProspectUpdate] is called [Status] and the Combo box on Form [ProspectResult] is called [cmb_CallResult].

    Question: How do I cause a text box value to update on [ProspectUpdate] from a combo selection made on [ProspectResult]![Cmb_CallResult]
    Each time the combo on [ProspectResult] changes, the text box on ProspectUpdate should reflect the value in cmb_CallResult on Form [ProspectResult].

    I am assuming to use the after update event on [ProspectResult]![Status] but I cant get the code to work. Using the Default Value setting on property sheet on the [ProspectUpdate]! [Status] field works once but the field does not update this way when the combo changes on the subform.

    Many thanks for all your help.

    Run an append query (or update) to the table the combo reads.
    Refresh the combo. CboBox.requery
