    Unanswered: Newbie's combo box/text box woes

    I've made a four-language verbs database (English, Spanish, Portugues, Kreyol). I've populated the tables with a sampling of 3 records. I've related all the tables, and I've created a form. From here it gets more difficult to talk about and easier just to see what I want to do if you just look at the attached database (95 KB).

    I go right to inputs, desired outputs, logic criteria, etc.

    Refer to form "frmVerbs," which has the following controls on it: 12 text boxes, 2 combo boxes.

    The whole problem is threefold: (1) enter text in the first 4 text boxes, (2) select from either the combo box labled "Conjugacion" on the page labeled "Espanol" or the combo box labeled "Conjugasao" on the page labeled "Portuguese" to set the values of the text boxes on the pages labeled "Espanol" and "Portuguese," (3) Click the page labeled "Kreyol" and enter text in the two text boxes. That's it.

    Here is a specific example of what should happen:

    1. Click the new record button, labeled >* at the bottom of the form.
    2. Enter "to walk" in the text box labeled "English." Enter "andar" in the text box labled "Spanish" and in the text box labeled "Portuguese." Enter "mache" in the text box labeled "Kreyol."

    At this point the 3 text boxes on the page labeled "Espanol" and the 3 text boxes on the page labeled "Portuguese" should be blank. The two text boxes on the page labeled "Kreyol" should also be blank at this point.

    5. Click the combo box labeled "Conjugacion" on the page labeled "Espanol." Select "hablar." OR click the combo box labeled "Conjugasao" on the page labeled "Portuguese." Select "falar."

    Now the values of the 3 text boxes on the page labeled "Espanol" should be set as follows...

    The text box labeled "Present Participle" should have the value "hablando"
    The text box labeled "Past Participle" should have the value "hablado"
    The text box labeled "Imperative" should have the value "hable"

    The values of the 3 text boxes on the page labeled "Portuguese" should be set as follows...

    The text box labeled "Present Participle" should have the value "falando"
    The text box labeled "Past Participle" should have the value "falado"
    The text box labeled "Imperative" should have the value "fale"

    6. Click the page labeled "Kreyol." The two text boxes should be blank at this point.
    7. In the text box labeled "Kreyol Expression" enter "mache expression placeholder"
    8. In the text box labeled "English Interpretation" enter "to walk expression placeholder"

    The whole problem is that the form "frmVerbs" doesn't work right. It works in part, but steps #5, #7, and #8 don't.


    Thanks!

    sorry: i don't download .mdX (i know what i could do to a downloader)

    your question might be too complicated for the folk who have the answer: find an aspect of your problem that is causing difficulties and post a simple question on that aspect.
