Question for Bill or one of the other pros, is there a difference whether this combo box lookup is put in the header section or the detail section? I understand the difference in a header section and detail section in a report but I'm not sure what difference there is between a header section on a form and the detail section.

Thanks Bill! I'll check it out.
First I gotta fix a new project that went over 2 gb. I'm in line for an sql server for it, but in the interim I have to fix this issue.
here is a simple one using a combo box in the main form's header:
Private Sub cboSearch_AfterUpdate()
Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
If Len(Me.cboSearch & vbNullString) = 0 Then Exit Sub
Set rs = Me.Recordset
rs.FindFirst "ProjectNum=" & Me.cboSearch
'Clear search box
cboSearch = Null
Set rs = Nothing
Hello Bill! You know, I didn't know I could do it this other way. If I put controls in the forms header the code that corresponds to that wouldn't be the f&r header?
I'm just using code that had been built from the wizards and never pursued any other method. Wow.
What does your code look like behind the forms header controls?
No, I don't think so. You will have to make your own find & replace form or put the controls in the form's header. That's the way I usually do it. Why are you automatically opening the F&R window?

Good Morning Liz,
When we open Back Shop Tracker we immediately open the FIND THE WO TO EDIT at the top left of the screen. It then opens another smaller window called FIND AND REPLACE. When this window opens, it opens right in the middle top portion of the screen. A weird place! We then have to drag it over to the empty space to the right where I illustrate in the attached file. Is it a problem to change the code so that when we open that tab, it automagically appears in THIS location? No a huge problem in the scope of life's issues, but it would make it nicer and cleaner for us.
Thank you kindly, Now enjoy your Friday!
