    Transfer Text to Unbound Form

    I am opening an unbound form to add to a combo box when the text is not the list. How do I populate the field in the unbd form with the new text that has been entered?

    Why are you opening another form? You already know what the user wants so why not just add it to the list? You seem to be set on using UnBound forms. Any particular reason?

    I was using an unbound form because I wanted to not only prompt the user, but gather additional information. When they typed in a new client name, the prompt asked if they wanted to add a new client. Then the unbound box also allowed them to put in address information associated with the new client. (Address, City, State). Suggest a better way.....
