As of right now the new version of IBO 4 only enhances the performance and
responsiveness for very large tables. I think you should give the Enh
controls that Geoff Worboys provides. They have benefits that the standard
IBO lookup combo's don't have.

create tons of queries and more important, define the relationship with
every single use. Surely there must be a more elegant solution to this ?
Does the newest (upcoming) version 4.0 of IBO provide an answer ????
