activating a combobox

Yes, I wanted to physically pop them open. Some of my stuff has a series of combos, each populated based on the previous one, and I (and the users) find it helpful to automatically open each one to make the contents immediately visible. Saves clicking, looks spiffy! There is a command to do this in Access and I was hoping for the same kind of thing in Rev. But Pat's workaround will do the job failing a built-in method. Thanks anyway, Jacque.

 Do you actually want to physically pop up the button, or just get and
 set menu items and selections? If all you need is the data, then you can
 read the button contents, or send a menupick message to the button to
 activate its script. Let us know if you need more info about that.
