Question
Hi Scott
I am using access 2010.
My problem is that I want to show a default value in combo box, e.g. "Make a Selection".
Can you help please?
Many thanks
John

Answer
You can use a UNION query as the rowsource to add a record for "Make A Selection" and set that as the default.

Hope this helps,
Scott<>
