RE: [MS_AccessPros] Combo to Text



I wish I could follow you but I am not quite smart enough.  I think I need a few more details to help me understand.  I am not quite able to understand the concept.

You can add text boxes (invisible) with control sources of:




Then, in the report, use the names of the text boxes rather than the names of the combo boxes.

I have a few unbound fields on a form.  Once the fields are filled in the user can click a button and a report opens with some of the fields already populated with the text from the unbound fields on the form.  It was actually working pretty good until I changed a few of the unbound filed to Combo boxes.  Now the user selects a value from the combo box.  However when the report is opened I am getting an error, which I expected.  What I want is to still show the text attached to the number behind the combo box. 


So agent 2 is Bill, based on the table the combo box uses,   If  “Bill” is selected from the combo box, I know the value the combo box is holding is “2” which is what I want, but is there any way to open a form and pull the text “Bill” rather than the value 2?


There is no query or table behind the form as I do not want to store the values there.  The unbound field will also be use to append some of the data to other tables, which is why I need the combo boxes, as that matches the data type of the table the data may be moved to.
