Power Combo Box and List Box Techniques

Combo boxes and list boxes are very powerful. Being able to properly respond to a combo box's NotInList event, to populate a combo box by using code, and to select multiple entries in a list box are essential skills of an experienced Access programmer. They're covered in detail in the following sections.

Handling the NotInList Event

As discussed, the NotInList event occurs when a user types a value in the text box portion of a combo box that's not found in the combo box list. This event takes place only if the LimitToList property of the combo box is set to True. It's up to you whether you want to respond to this event.
