    Cascading combo box in sub form

    hello friends
    I have a sub form with four fields’ field1, field2, field3 and field4. I want to auto display corresponding data in field2 when I select field1.
    I have this in sub form

    field1 | field2|
    A | B |
    C | D |

    When I select A in field1 I want field2 to display B

    field1 | field2|
    A | B |

    I have two tables in database table1 and table2 .
    Table1 - ID, field1, field2, field3 and Table2 - ID, field1, field2, field3, field4
    I have added fields by selecting table1 using sub form wizard. I have deleted field1 and added a combo box and renamed field1 bound to field1 of table1, a text box as field2 with control source =[field1].[field2]. It displays #Name? in field1.
    Can someone tell how can I do it?

    You can download a sample database at Bullschmidt.com - Sample Access Invoices Database and open it up and notice that on the Invoices Dialog the Invoice # combo box on the search form is based on what was entered in the Rep and Customer combo boxes above it.

    This is done by the RowSource property of the Customer combo box's SQL statement. Also the OnEnter property of the Customer combo box runs a function which requeries itself:

    ' Dim var.
    Dim ctl As Control

    ' Set var.
    Set ctl = Screen.ActiveControl

    ' Requery control.
