As surprising as this seems to me, I completed everything that was urgent faster than I expected to. There are a few text books still to be purchased and a few phone calls to be made... A little cleaning to do. Some reading... All that can wait. I'm home free, baby! Yay!

Procrastination will commence tomorrow. No really, no pun intended.

With unlimited motivation, I should be able to complete my two college transfer app today and have nothing to worry about until the Spring semester begin.

But instead, I am here, procrastinating.

I will not judge you. TV and music is much more fun than to take a conscious choice for the future, which is just boring.

I should be doing something clever in MS Access. Instead I'm running up against errors, lack of documentation, and the program's refusal to co-operate. I am banging my head against a metaphorical wall.

Aw, man. Access was the bane of my existence at work last year. You have my sympathies.
I'm supposed to be writing an essay, but I've just hit a brick wall with my original subject, so I am going to use a cheat I had as back up, thus have most of the writing and research done already :D

Don't suppose you remember a few tricks from your Access days? The error I am now running up against is that it thinks text entered in a combo box on a form is "invalid". It thinks it's a number-only field. Nowhere have I specified that I want it to be a number-only field. In fact, I specifically want it to be a text field, but oh no apparently that isn't one of the options. Also, where is the value entered into a combo box stored? I've tried [name].Text and [name].Value and various others, but none seem to work, they just come up blank.

I would be tearing my hair out if I had any.

I never used combo boxes, really-we wanted the user to have as little input as possible-we provided drop-down lists for pretty much everything. What version of access are you using? I've had a quick look in access 2003, but obviously can't recreate the problem. Also, have you bound the combo box to a field? I'm pretty sure it should be stored in that field? I may be talking rubbish, and I used access 07 at work, which had lots of differences.

TL; DR: Not really, sorry.

Combo boxes ARE drop down lists aren't they? You press the little arrow in it and a list drops down.

Drop down lists have a fixed list that can't be added to. Combo boxes are a combination of a normal text box and a drop down list. At least, that's how I understand the thing. I'm most likely wrong.
