    Unanswered: Some help please DLookUp etc

    Guys I could use some help, I'm very new to Access and I'm trying to pull together some basic business applications.

    I have a combo-box in a subform where I can select a Product, depending upon the Product selected I want 2 other fields in the Subform to be automatically updated with the correct valus associated with the product - the Product Reference, and the Products Buying Price.

    I thought about using DLookUp to get the values from the Product Table, based upon the Product selected from the combo-box, however, how to I get the it to looup when the product changes or only when there is a value in the product field.

    Any ideas/answers would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Andy

    Yes You can use Dlookup
    But I Wouldn't as you have the data haft there

    Why not just use the combo-box

    if you add the Columns you want to the combo-box and set the widths to 0 so you don't see them
    just add the columns to the query

    then what you can do is in the afterupdate!combo-box

    me.otherfeild = me.combo-box.Column(??)

    ?? where it is the Column number you want

    But the To use a Dlookup

    BlaBla = Dlookup("FEILDNAME","TABLENAME","WHAT")

    WHAT = "[PRODUCTID]=" & me.combo ' for a number
    or
    WHAT = "[PRODUCTID]='" & me.combo & "'" ' for text
    hope this help

    See clear as mud
