Its the simple things that are most frustrating. Trying to use a dropdown for a user to add an email to a list of recipients. It works mostly, user clicks the arrow on the combo then clicks on one of the emails listed then the email gets added to a text box which is a collection of emails chosen separated by semicolons, Perfect. However if the user just starts typing an email it 'autocompletes' based on the RowSource, as it should, then if the user hits enter, the underlying form suddenly goes into new record mode. I just want it to add that email to the text box (collection of email addresses), clear the combo box and wait for the next entry or for the user to move on to another field. Also I have a function to add an email to the list if it isn't already on it (fired by the not in list event) and it seems to be working fine datawise but the form behaves the same as previously after the user acknowledges with the obligatory "Are you Sure" mgsbox. Help is greatly appreciated.
