I'm using a combo box in a form, and it shows a list of choices no problem, and if I press the down arrow it will move through those choices...but I can't seem to get it to 1)allow me to type text in the box, and 2)move to the next field(a textbox) when I press the Enter key.

Any suggestions on how to keep the focus on the combo box when the form first opens, allowing me to type text in and then when press Enter key go to the next field? Thanks!

Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.
