Combo Boxes

Combo boxes allow a user to select from a list of appropriate choices. Access offers several easy ways to add a combo box to a form. If a field’s Display Control property has been set to Combo Box, a combo box is automatically added to a form when the field is added. The combo box automatically knows the source of its data as well as all its other important properties.

If a field’s Display Control property hasn’t been set to Combo Box, the easiest way to add a combo box to a form is to use the Control Wizard. When selected, the Use Control Wizards tool helps you add combo boxes, list boxes, option groups, and subforms to your forms. Although all the properties set by the Combo Box Wizard can be set manually, using the wizard saves both time and energy. If you want the Combo Box Wizard to be launched when you add a combo box to the form, make sure the Control Wizards tool in the Controls group on the Design tab of the ribbon has been clicked (switched on) before you add the combo box.

Select the Combo Box tool on the Design tab of the ribbon and then click and drag to place the combo box on the form. This launches the Combo Box Wizard; its first step is shown in Figure 5.34. You’re offered three sources for the combo box’s data. Use the first option if your combo box will select the data that’s stored in a field, such as the state associated with a particular client. I rarely, if ever, use the second option, which requires that you type the values for the combo box. Populating a combo box this way makes it difficult to maintain. Every time you want to add an entry to the combo box, your application must be modified. The third, and final, option is appropriate when you want the combo box to be used as a tool to search for a specific record. For example, a combo box can be placed in the form’s header to display a list of valid customers. After selecting a customer, the user is then moved to the appropriate record. This option is available only when the form is bound to a record source.

In the second step of the Combo Box Wizard, you select a table or query to populate the combo box. For optimal performance, you should select a query. In the third step, you select the fields that appear in your combo box (see Figure 5.35). The combo box being built in the example will be used to select the contact type associated with a particular client. Although the ContactType field will be the only field visible in the combo box, ContactTypeID and ContactType should both be selected because ContactTypeID is a necessary element of the combo box. After a contact type has been selected from the combo box, the ContactTypeID associated with the Contact Type will be stored in the ContactTypeID field of the tblClients table.
