How To Fill Fields From Combo Box
Fill Multiple Form Fields From Combo Box
The Microsoft Access combo box programming example shows you how you can include up to nine different fields in a combo box select query and use these fields to fill in other fields on your data entry forms.
Microsoft Access is a fully capable database and it's primary limitations is the number of concurrent users it will support. Generally, we recommend a limit of 10 to 15 users.
We create databases large and small. Some of our databases help run entire small businesses. We also handle unique businesses such as flyrod manufacturing, cheese making, marina management, and cable tv inventory.
Note that this example is for single-record form layouts. In the downloaded example note the Data Source property for the combo box and the Default Value properties for the Room Number and Telephone Number fields.
You can combine this technique with the dependent combo box example to add additional capability to your Access forms. Make sure the Column Count property of the combo box matches the number of fields in the select statement for the combo box. If you indicate less fields than you have selected then assigned the values to other fields simply won't work and you won't get any error message.

More complex variations of this method exist for Access continuous data forms. The fact that only a single record existing in the design and functioning of a continuous form makes apply dependency a bit more complex. See how dependent box boxes are handled on continuous forms.
