    Report showing only a numeric value from a list box. I need the value of that list box.


    I have a report that use multiple list boxes. When I print/view the report all I see is the numeric value of the list rather than the data. How do I get the value to show up on the report. Thanks for your help,.

    you prob. have 2 columns, ID, and text.
    you must have bound the combo bound to ID. (default is col. 1)
    If you want the text values do not put ID in the combo query.

    If you need the ID to go into the target field , but want the user to see the text, then the query will have 2 fields, ID is bound, but set the column widths to hide the ID and the user will only see the text.
    columncount =2
    columnwidths: 0;1
