    Filter available values in a drop down list

    Hello Everbody,

    I created a form from the main table of my database. As you can see on the print screens, I can choose my "events" from a dropdown list.

    The current dropdown list lets choose all the event.
    What I want to do is to limit this list to a few values, for exemple EOL, SOL and TARGET.
    I will then build a second form where the same drop down list will allow to choose all other values.

    I guess there is a code to set on the Row Source properties that let me filter the available values. Maybe something to do with queries?

    Thank you very much,

    if all you want in the main form's dd list is 3 values, use a value list as the rowsource type. It's in the properties tabs. type your values for the dd list in there, separated by semicolons. afterwards, you can reference those values from anywhere else in the db by references the dd control, by form+name.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
