Hello all,

I am trying to use the below VBA code for sending an email. I would like to use the data in the DefectCategory combo box to pull the correct data the current record. The issue is that I only have the foreign key id in the combo box and would like the more descriptive field called DefectCatType in the table where the defect categories are listed.

There are two tables involved in this scenario. dbo.NonConfData and dbo.DefectCategory

dbo.NonConfData is the table with the combo box that references dbo.DefectCategory

The line I am having an issue with in vb is stDefect = Me.DefectCategory.Value

I need to have this display the data in the DefectCatType field of the dbo.DefectCategory table for the record in dbo.NonConfData.

Please let me know your thoughts on how this can be accomplished.


Private Sub Command75_Click()
Dim stId As Integer
Dim db As Database
Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
Dim appOutLook As Outlook.Application
Dim MailOutLook As Outlook.MailItem
Dim stText As String
Dim stDefect As String
'==Save the current record
If Me.Dirty Then Me.Dirty = False
Set appOutLook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set MailOutLook = appOutLook.CreateItem(olMailItem)
stId = Me.Id
stDefect = Me.DefectCategory.Value
stText = "NonConformance Generated IR #" & stId & Chr$(13) & _
Chr$(13) & "Defect Category:" & stDefect
With MailOutLook
.BodyFormat = olFormatRichText
.To = "KEITH@COMPANY.com"
''.cc = ""
''.bcc = ""
.Subject = "NonConformance Generated IR #" & stId
.HTMLBody = stText
.Send
End With
End Sub


Below are my table definitions


-- Create CaseData Table
CREATE TABLE dbo.NonConfData
(
Id INT IDENTITY(100,1)
,CaseDate DATE NOT NULL Default GetDate()
,Creator INT NOT NULL
,ProducedBy INT NOT NULL
,DefectCategory INT NOT NULL
,Quantity Decimal(7,2) Default(1.00) NOT NULL
,DispositionAuthority VARCHAR (50)
,NonConfDetails NVARCHAR(MAX) NOT NULL
,InspectorDetails NVARCHAR(MAX) NOT NULL
,IRAttachments VARBINARY(MAX)
,CONSTRAINT [PK_ID] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED
(
[ID] ASC
)WITH
(
PAD_INDEX = OFF
, STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE = OFF
, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF
, ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS = ON
, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS = ON
) ON [PRIMARY]
) ON [PRIMARY]
GO

--Create the Defect Category table
CREATE TABLE dbo.DefectCategory
(
ID INT IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL
,DefectCatType VARCHAR (25) NOT NULL
,DateStamp Date Default GetDate() NOT NULL
,CONSTRAINT [PK_DefectID] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED
(
[ID] ASC
)WITH
(
PAD_INDEX = OFF
, STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE = OFF
, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF
, ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS = ON
, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS = ON
) ON [PRIMARY]
) ON [PRIMARY];
GO

--Add the foreign key constraint to the NonConfData table and DefectCategory table to establish a relationship

ALTER TABLE dbo.NonConfData WITH CHECK ADD CONSTRAINT FK_DefectCategory_DefectCatType FOREIGN KEY(DefectCategory)
REFERENCES dbo.DefectCategory (ID)
GO

If you want to display the content of the combo box control, then you need to use the syntax that chooses the correct column in the combo box row properties. It should look something like:
stDefect = Me.DefectCategory.Column(X)

where X is the column number where the Defect Category is displayed. Note that the columns numbering begins with 0, so in many cases it would be Column(1).

Thanks for the reply Wendel. I did try your suggestion but received the error message Method or Data Member not found. I also attached a print screen.
do you think I'm missing a reference?

Disregard my last message. I changed Me.DefectCategory to Me.Combo45.Column(1) and it worked.
Thanks for that idea.

That indicates the name of your combobox control is Combo45. Your initial code was trying to find a combobox named DefectCategory on your form. If you change the name of Combo45 on the form to DefectCategory, you would be able to use Me.DefectCategory.Column(1).
