Can selecting a combo box make a text box visible again

Is it possible when choosing a combo box to have it make a text box visible, when in this text boxes properties you've chosen visible=NO. Can an event procedure or some code be written that will make visible=YES.

Thanks any help with be greatly appreciated

Hey patentinv,

You could use on of the combo boxes events, depending upon when you want the text box to appear. On Got Focus, if it's when the cursor enters the combox box, After Update, if when the combo box has data and etc.

In the event you could put: Me!TextBoxName.Visible = True
