Thanks, I changed that (on the Subject properties) and now when I (the
user/sender) make a selection from the combo box, it appears on the subject
line. BUT when I input values in the other two text boxes, their values DO
NOT appear in the Subject field.

However, if I change the selection in the combo box, the change IS NOT
reflected in the Subject field; it remains the initial selection.

What else might I be missing? Is the formula I am using for the Subject
field correct?

Sorry if these are very basic things, but I am a complete noob at this and I
need a lot of help.

I made sure that the

I don't know if this is standard but I've had problems picking up values
like that unless I used an intermediate control, like a textbox that isn't
visible. I set the textbox to take the selection from the list and then use
the textbox contents in the formula. See if that helps.

I should have also asked you, in regard to you previous reply about the radio
button - you meant only for the Subject field, correct? I presumed you
weren't telling me to do that for ALL of the related fields that are suppose
to populate the Subject field.

Please confirm, Thanks.

Anything that needs to be updated when the field or a subfield used to
populate that field changes should have that setting.

Make sure the radio control under "set initial value" is set to "Calculate
this formula automatically" on the Value tab of the control.

I don't know if this is standard but I've had problems picking up values
like that unless I used an intermediate control, like a textbox that isn't
visible. I set the textbox to take the selection from the list and then use
the textbox contents in the formula. See if that helps.

I should have also asked you, in regard to you previous reply about the radio
button - you meant only for the Subject field, correct? I presumed you
weren't telling me to do that for ALL of the related fields that are suppose
to populate the Subject field.

Please confirm, Thanks.

Anything that needs to be updated when the field or a subfield used to
populate that field changes should have that setting.
