    Make data from drop down list in form appea on the table?

    Hi, I am new to this forum and quite new to Access.

    Im looking to create a basic order form for my company.

    Here is my problem. I have a form set up with a drop down list, and three values in it. I want whatever the use selects to appear in the appropiate column in the corrisponding table. How do I do that?

    Usually the only value that should be saved is the PK/FK value. Why do you need to save 3 values? This will require code.
    How to attach file: To provide db: copy, remove confidential data, run compact & repair, zip w/Windows Compression.
