Count in combo box(display results in text box)
I have a combobox (Title) that shows the title(i.e. Mr / Mrs / Miss etc .....). I have a text box at the bottom of this to keep track of how many Mr(s),Mrs(s) etc i have selected.i.e. When i select Mr for the first time and enter his details and again for the second time and enter another persons details,it should show in the text box the number 2.Which shows that i have selected the title Mr 2 times..

Pliz help me how tofigure this out in MS Access form.

Hi Anukagni,I have everything in one table and one form.Here is the case:My table is called registration,from is Regform,combo box called genderCombo and up to 4 text boxes being Proftext,Misstext,Mrtext and Mstext.e.g. If i select Professor for the 1st time from the list in combo box,it should display 1 in Protext.If i do it for 2nd and 3rd,it should increment the number to 3 in the same textbox.
Pliz help...

I tried the code below but it only displays what i have selected from combo box into textbox.(i.e. if i select Prof,it display Prof in the text box instead of number 1, when i select it for the first time).
NB:I tried it using Prof and Miss only.

Private Sub genderCombo_AfterUpdate()
 If Me!genderCombo = "Prof" Then
    Me!Proftext = "Prof"
    Me!Misstext = "Miss"
End If
End Sub

Do you need to keep this count after the form is closed or do you just want to count how many titles you entered for this session and then NOT keep that number for future use?
