Default Display 2 fields as one line in the combobox

Hi guys,

I have a comboBox which is populated by records from the database. The code that I use to do this is

Set cnAddMovie = New ADODB.Connection
cnAddMovie.Provider = "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0"
cnAddMovie.Open App.Path & "./tek.mdb"

Set rsMovie = New ADODB.Recordset
'Add another ComboBox
Dim strSQL As String    
   strSQL = "SELECT UserNo, FirstName, LastName FROM users"

  rsMovie.Open strSQL, cnAddMovie, adOpenForwardOnly, adLockReadOnly, adCmdText

  With cboNames
    Do While Not rsMovie.EOF
      .AddItem rsMovie.Fields("FirstName").Value
      .ItemData(.NewIndex) = rsMovie.Fields("UserNo").Value
  End With

  Set rsMovie = Nothing

End Sub
This ends up displaying the first name in the combobox. How can I include the last name field to appear on the same line with FirstName?

hello there...

you have 2 ways to do this...

first one, modify the sql to return one field that has the first and last name the way you want to show it on the combo box

strSQL = "SELECT UserNo, (FirstName+' '+LastName) As Name FROM users"

other way is to do this when you fill the combo box, something like

.AddItem rsMovie.Fields("FirstName").Value & " " & rsMovie.Fields("LastName").Value

either way will do the same...
