Default Continuing Q re. Combo Boxes

I posted a question yesterday (see below). Ken Snell referred me to the
following article, http://www.mvps.org/access/forms/frm0058.htm, which I was
able to read, but it seems to be referring to some kind of programming code,
which I do not know how to use. As informative as this article is, I don't
know what to do with, indeed, can't really utilize this information.

Is there someone who can tell me how to do the same thing using the wizards
or something in lay-persons terms? Thanks.

In Peace,

Max

I want to create a combo box where, if the user enters the zip code, the city and state will be automatically filled in (with the option to change it, where some towns share a zip code).


I don't need every zip code in the country, just the ones we serve. In
order to make sure I include them all, I went to the old database and created
a simple query of zip code, city and state. I got the zip code, city and
state for each of the almost 4,000 records; of course, there are duplications
of the same information where many members live in the same city!

I can't figure out where to go next with this. I have a book on Access
2002, but all it's telling me about is something called "List Boxes" and I
don't know what they are. Can someone help me by using everyday terms that I
can understand (just using the Access options, please, I am totally ignorant
of SQL, VBA, etc., except that I know I don't know anything about them!).

I notice that you've posted this in the tablesdbdesign newsgroup, so perhaps
you're attempting to do it in the table? That might explain why you're
having difficulty using Ken's suggestion. You can't do this kind of thing in
a table, you need to use a form.
