Updating Bound Controls from a List or Combo Box

When you want your bound controls to be updated in reaction to a user click in a list box or combobox, add this code to the click-event (or double-click event) of the list or combo control:

Data1.Recordset.Bookmark = _


As a result, your current record is now the record of which the key is presented in the list part of your DBCombo/List. All bound controls are updated automatically. You need to set only the RowSource and the ListField properties of the bound combo/list to achieve this behavior. It saves a lot of trouble converting text strings or other data-type conversions.
