View t...Having issues handling combo-box
I have a combo-box. I want to allow folks to enter by typing OR use the
mouse to click on the dropdown. If they type I want it to auto-complete -
that is no problem as the drop list style handles this. Where my problem
arises is that when they pick the one they want I then need to know so I can
do some added processing. I could handle the kill focus for when they type
but that causes confusion when they use the mouse.
What I want to be able to do is recognize when they hit <Enter> and act in a
manner similar to that used when they use the mouse to pick an entry. The

You may use the ValidationRule and ValidationText of the field in the
table design view. Setting ValidationRule to Len([YourField])>7) will
raise an error in your case.

I have a combo box in a form that lists all of the countries. I am
trying to set it up so that if the user presses the first letter, it
goes to the name of the first country with that letter and then if they
press the same letter again, it goes to the next country that begins
with that letter. I have the first part working, but the second part
is not working. I press a letter once and it goes to the first country
beginning with that letter, but when I press it again, it doesn't go to
the next one. Is there a property to set in the form for that combo
box to make it do this?

How do you password protect a spreadsheet. I can't find anything in the help
You can prevent un authorised access by giving a password to open the
workbook itself, so that no one else can open it (Go to Tools, Options and
then Security Tab). You can do it there if you have already saved the file,
or you can go to "save as" then "Tools" and "General Options" where you can
On the other hand you can protect work sheets and ranges for different
people by using "Tools" and then "Protection" Tab
