I don't know. Which one is the datasource for qryMemberBen? That's the one that should be the Keysource.

I don't know enough about your structures to know how to get unique KeyLinks. All I could see from your original was that they weren't identified (and therefore were ambiguous) and that, with the selected columns, afaict, you have either non-uniqueness or redundancy.

btw, in case you didn't already work this out - if the updateSQL doesn't reflect the Keylinks, you won't get a live dataset (I believe). And, if the dataset can't go live, the dropdown won't work (it only works in Edit mode).

Sorry, Dion, I'm going to have to leave this thread now, and get on with my own workload.
