    Unanswered: Tracing the source of a prompt

    Would anyone know of a way to trace the source of a prompt?

    I have a large form. I just made some changes to it, and now when it is opened in form view, the user receives a prompt requesting a value for Lookup_ShipToID.BriefDescriptor.

    My immediate question is whether it's possible to determine which specific item in the form is spawning this prompt box? Is there a feature that will track the culprit down for me?

    Secondarily, does the Lookup_ signify anything in particular? ShipToID and BriefDescriptor tell me what the likely candidates are (a combo box that returns those values).

    This only started happening after I replaced the row source of that combo box with a new query.

    Any and all help most appreciated. Thank you!

    It looks as though it cannot find field briefDescriptor in table/query shipTo. When you changed the row source, did you do any renaming?

    It turned out that I needed to open the properties of the form itself and delete the GROUP BY property. That solved it.

    Whew!
