Re: quickly choosing option as you type from combo-box for invoice

This is my code I use to turn any combo into a find as you type combo. It requires the user to drop this code into a class module named FindAsYouTypeCombo (class module not standard module).

Re: BrowseFolder

You would use the MS Office xx.0 library with xx being whatever is loaded.

To pick folders use msoFileDialogFolderPicker rather than msoFileDialogFilePicker

Re: The code in this project must be updated for use on 64-bit system

I think you'll find that developers creating databases for external use / sale will know about this - if only by finding out the hard way.

Re: on print tick the checkbox as printed

Yeah my example will not work for you as your fields names differ from the example. I only wanted you to confirm to the readers that your looking to update a Boolean field.

Sorry for the confusion.

Re: Temporarily Disabling right-click Shortcut Menus

I believe you are out of luck.
This is one of the startup properties for a database so by definition you have to restart it

Re: IsNull Problem

Just to explain why Paul's suggestion is a good one, VBA function and subroutine syntax can be ambiguous with respect to parentheses. There are times when you need them and times when you don't.
