    Unanswered: Prevent user from changing value from combo box.

    I have a combo box that gets its values from a table.
    Is there any way to prevent users from typing in their own values? I only want the user to be able to select a value that is in the combo box.

    In the properties of the combobox there is an item called : List Only
    The value should be true.

    I use access 2000. i didn't find "List Only", but setting "Limit to list" to "Yes" seems to work as well.
    thanks for the help.

    I have a dutch version of access so i always have to guess what the right translation could be.
    Glad I could help you anyway.
