Default what is a combo box?

I am using the education template and I am trying to find out what a combo
box is.

I need a field on a table that can be added to.

I have a student that takes course A and then a month later takes course B.

How can I create a field on the students detail sheet that can add to it
over and over again.

Default what is a combo box?

A combo box allows the user to select from a list of choices. It may or may
not limit selections to items already on the list. The list may be derived
from a table/query, or you can use a Value List for a few choices that are
unlikely to change (e.g."Agree";"Disagree";"Don't know"

Your question is not clear, although perhaps somebody familiar with the
template may have insight that I do not. It may be worthwhile to study some
fundamentals. IMHO Crystal's tutorial is as good a place as any to start:

Jeff Conrad's resources page:
