Lesson 16. Creating Special Data-Entry F... > Creating a List Box or Combo Box

Creating a List Box or Combo Box

A list box or combo box can come in handy if you find yourself typing certain values repeatedly into a field. For example, if you have to enter the name of one of your 12 branch offices each time you use a form, you might find it easier to create a list box containing the branch office names, and then you can click to select from the list. With a list box, the person doing the data entry is limited to the pretyped choices that display.

A combo box is useful when a list box is appropriate, but it's possible that a different entry might occasionally be needed. For example, if most of your customers come from one of six states but occasionally you get a new customer from another state, you might use a combo box. During data entry, you could choose the state from the list when appropriate and type a new state when it's not.
