    Dual Column Comboxbox


    Good day.

    I've been struggling with this for a while.

    I have a subform (subfrmPlayerStats) which includes a combobox (called [Team]) with two columns (NHLTeam in one column, and their respective AHLTeam in the second).

    The record source for this subform is called "qryPlayerStats". In this query, there are three tables:

    There is a checkbox in the main form (frmPlayerStats) called [Minors].

    What I want to do is when I check the box, the combobox will store column 2, and when unchecked, it will store column 1.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    It would make more sense to have only one table for all teams, with a "League" field (or whatever you call it!)

    I tried that route before, but if it makes more sense, I reverted back to that. Now I have one table (tblTeams):

    The combobox contents are still the same.

    Just one field as well - "Team", with a type of team field noting NHL or AHL, maybe one for Minor yes/no. Plus whatever else you need associated with that team (city, etc)

    Sorry, not a sports fan here! You say "associated" team, not sure what that means, but that would be another table which would be a cross-reference between the two holding each team's primary key value.

    The Teams table requires a primary key which in this case would be an AutoNumber - TeamID.

    Each NHL team has their own AHL Team (see first picture where the NHL team is on the left column and their respective AHL team is on the right hand column). Therefore, I want to create another record where the player played on the respective AHL team. For example, looking at the above first picture, if a player was on the Washington Capitals, and I want to have that person play to their respective AHL Team, I would add a record ("Next Team/Season" button - see below), check the [Minors] checkbox on the main form, and select "Washington Capitals | Hershey Bears" but it would store "Hershey Bears" in the table below the form (see picture below).

    [NHLTeam] is tblTeams is the primary key (see query picture above)

    I think I may have found a solution. Not sure if it will work in the long run, but the result so far is what I'm looking for. What I did was create another query for AHL Teams and their stats. I also had to create a new AHL subform that would appear when I check the [Minors] checkbox. Here was the big thing. I changed the record source for the table (the last photo above) from qryPlayerStats to tblPlayerStats. Therefore, all records would show up relating to the Player's ID.

    It's not exactly I was trying to do, but close enough.

    Cheers.
