Users can now edit a value list or a combo box on-the-fly. How's that for adding flexibility and meeting a common need? Just about every application has a combo box, and now you have an easy way to allow users to update them with—you got it—no code required.
To allow users to edit or add new items to a value list, set property Allow Value List Edits to Yes. Users will see an Edit button when they are selecting an item from the list. Then, if they don't see what they want, they click the button and a dialog box prompts them through adding the new value. The list is updated and work proceeds. Chapter 10 has more information about combo boxes and value lists.
