    It's a button in the bottom of the combo box field in the forms, here's the picture of it.

    Okay, found it. I have comboboxes set not to allow value list edits. Never had reason to allow.

    My guess is that if it is tied to disabled ribbon or shortcut menu then it won't be available, period. Maybe the NotInList event could be used.

    June7 I made some code like this:
    Code:
    Private Sub Costumer_NotInList(NewData As String, Response As Integer)
        Dim intAnswer As Integer
        Dim i As Integer
        
        intAnswer = MsgBox(Chr(34) & NewData & Chr(34) & "is currently not in the list." & vbCrLf & "Do you want to add new costumer?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Not yet in List")
        If intAnswer = vbYes Then
            DoCmd.OpenForm "Costumers Form", , , , acFormAdd, acDialog
            Response = acDataErrAdded
        Else
            Response = acDataErrContinue
            i = MsgBox("Choose Costumer from list.", vbOKOnly, "Info")
        End If
    End Sub
    the question is
    1. How do I make when user answers "no", it will clear the newdata just typed on "Costumer" field(combobox one)?
    2. How do I Insert newdata just typed on "Name" field of Costumer form just opened if user answers "yes"?

    If no: Me.Costumer = Null

    If yes: automating to fill in the value on calling form (instead of requiring user to enter again) gets tricky. One way is for the customer form to set the value on the first form before closing, like:
    Forms!firstformname.controlname = Me.CostumerID

    Costumer or Customer?

    Another approach is for the first form to grab the data from the second form. I use this when a form can be called by several forms. Example from my project.
    Code:
    DoCmd.OpenForm "DialogGetDate", , , , , acDialog, "Logout"
    If CurrentProject.AllForms("DialogGetDate").IsLoaded Then
        Form_SampleManagement.tbxDate = Form_DialogGetDate.tbxDate
        DoCmd.Close acForm, "DialogGetDate"
    End If

    I realized that we can do it without NotInList event and the "button" I said earlier to add a list and open customer (now I spell it correctly LOL) form automatically.
    just write some text that isn't in the list yet and just tab over or enter it and the msgbox from microsoft access pops up.

    is there a way to change the msgbox content to something else? because I need to change it to some other text in msgbox?

    I think one reason for the NotInList event is to allow alternate message.
