Thanks for the response...and I've been looking at the said example for 2 days...found 2 errors (already reported)....but it doesn't work as I want it, and basically 'cause it modifies the dt from which the combobox sources it data.
This data...in my project...is a query from the systables object in SQL Server, which obviously i do not want to modify.
I just want the combo to suggest but let the user: either select a value or just type whatever they want. Nothing else.
However, the current behavior acts like it were readonly and doesn't save the keyed data and it actually clears the data, before moving on...leaving the field BLANK.
