Re: Combo box selection
"the list" is the row source for the combo. That is either a value list, table or query. For your purpose, a table or query would be the way to go. To have a selection from the combo become the value of a field in a record, bind it to that field - as long as you're not using the combo to filter records. If you want the input of a scanner to become the value that's saved, you have to set the "limit to list" property to No.
