    Form name: TestParamForm
    Form caption: TestParamForm

    Row Source: testordqry
    Column Count: 2

    Bound Column: 1

  8. Add a command button to the form, and then set the OnClick property of the command button to the following event procedure:

  9. Save the form as TestParamForm.
  10. Run the TestParamForm form.
  11. Click the combo box. Note that it prompts you to enter an employeeID (as the query did). Enter any number. Then, click OK.
