    Cascading combo boxes

    Hi all

    I have been trying to modify a sample database to suit what I want to do but I am getting stuck on the very first part cascading combo boxes i want to open a form and add multiple items to a table - first i want to select, from a combo box a department - then select a supplier from all the suppliers/maufacturers related to that department then select a stock item based on the description from all the items available from that supplier

    I have attached the database I am using to modify and my database

    I would creatly appriciate if someone could get me started and pointed in the right direction the original databased used table and I'm using query's so not sure if what I am trying to do will work - I have looked at so many examples I am getting my self confused (I don't expect someone to do it for me but would just really appricate some guidence)



    Cheers Guys

    Hi there

    Thanks for the reply and for the tutorial links they are really good and helped simplified things after reading loads of different techniques and getting really confused. I have followed the tutorial but I'm having difficulty setting the second combo box to filter - it just either comes up blank or asks for what "Forms!EnterStock.Dept" which it should be getting form the Dept combo box - I must be missing something I have attached what I have done would be great if someone could have a look and let me know where I goin wrong I just keep going over the same thing over and over

    Cheers
