I am having problems with the After Update event on a combo box to retrieve a record. Here's the scenario (code snippet follows for the On Click event described below):

* Data Entry Form (with combo box for ID field selection & record retrieval)
* Button on DE form to open Search Form
* Search form has unbound text and list controls
* User inputs search ID into text control, this is highlighted in list form
* User clicks Close when right ID is retrieved
* Search form closes, focus back on combo box control on DE form
* Combo box has required ID, with the combo box in "open" position
* Record not retrieved until user re-selects ID from combo box
Private Sub cmdClose_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_cmdClose_Click

Dim frm As Form, ctl As Control

Set frm = Forms!frmSearchTenders
Set ctl = frm!lstTenders
' Check to see if the Listbox is null, ie: no item is selected.
' If it's null, tell the user. Otherwise, be happy and continue
' along with life.
If IsNull(ctl) Then
MsgBox "You have not made a selection!"
'MsgBox ctl.Column(0)
Forms!frmTendersDataEntry!cboTendersSelection.Valu e = ctl.Column(0)
Forms!frmTendersDataEntry!cboTendersSelection.SetF ocus
Forms!frmTendersDataEntry!cboTendersSelection.Drop down
End If

Exit Sub

MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_cmdClose_Click

End Sub
Thank you.
