Hello,

Your question is too general to give a specific answer. There needs to be some connection/relation between the two list boxes (or possibly combo box). You also state nothing about the purpose or use of such making it more difficult to give any direction.

For a detailed explanation of Form filters and list boxes (and many samples), please see this post -> Filter/Search with Forms (leveraging SubForms)

In the future, when asking a question it is usually helpful to include the specific LO version in use, the OS, and with Base what database is being used.

Thank you for clearifying

I am trying to create a form which is about students' categorization If you consider two blocks in it it would be great that if I type a numeric value in one, the other shows a text

for example: 1-15=Class A 16-28=Class B 29-40=Class C

I wanna type the value number of 3 and have "Class A" text in second block block, droplist or sth like this

It is important for me that the form be updated the time I choose the numeric value

I am using 6.2 Ver

@Raya Please Edit your question adding the additional information and noting the edited section. V6.2 is still general, no OS or which database yet either. Please do NOT abbreviate words to your liking. Others need to read including translating to other languages and abbreviations cause many problems!

Be more specific as to what you are doing. For example, you state to type in a number which then puts a class in next listing. Then you state form to be updated - with what?? The number, the class?? Is this actually a table, is this a form, sub form?? Hopefully you can see the information provided is vague. Remember we cannot see what you are looking at nor can we hear what you are thinking.

Yes this can be done. Since you've only asked IF it can be done, that's your answer. Clearly if you later want to know how to do this, then that involves many more details, and some significant learning on your part.

@Raya, I'm not the kind to do your work for you. At this point you need to design your underlying tables, listing specifically what each of their records fields are and how they are related. Feel free to EDIT our question above with that information.
