Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a combo box, part of Access 2010: Queries.
In the last movie we look at how we could take the value from a drop-down menu…on a form and use it as a criteria and a query.…In this movie, I want to take a quick look at how the combo box was created and…how the state names are populated in the drop-down list.…I've currently got that form frm_ EmployeeLookup opened. Let's go ahead and…switch into Design view.…We'll take a look at the Properties for this form by clicking on the object.…If it is not open, you can open up the Property Sheet and then we'll switch to the Data tab.…We can see that the Row Source for this particular object includes this long code.…
Now I can see that the select statement here indicate that this is a query in SQL view.…If I click on the Build button we'll open the same query in the Query Design window.…Now this query is embedded in the form. You won't find it anywhere in…the navigation pane.…I can run the query to see the results that are being returned and we notice…that we have a column for the abbreviation for the state and the state name.…
