    I have downloaded the book collection database from microsoft website but i would like to alter it a little.

    When i am entering the details of book on the second box down you can click on the box and enter the books topic IE crime, romance, thriller and so onand then when you enter the next book you have only to enter the first letter and it is entered automaticly.

    My question is how do i copy this feature as i would like to have another so i can easley enter where i got the books from without having to type all the infomation in.

    Hope someone can help please

    49sam, I think that you are talking about a Combo Box. This can be added to the form using the Controls Toolbox Wizard, which creates it for you.
    Have you created a Table for where you get the books from?
