Is this VB 6 or VB .Net?In VB 6, the dbcombo control exposes a RowSource property for the datasource that will populate the combo box items, and a DataSource property that will populate/accept the selected item. The code below illustrates:

' Recordset used to populate the combo box items for selectionDim rowsourceRS as new ADODB.Recordset' Recordset that contains the data field to be populatedDim datasourceRS as new ADODB.Recordset' Populate the recordsetsrowsourceRS.Open "Select id, name from ref_types", myConnectiondatasourceRS.Open "Select recid, mnyame, mytype from recs ", myConnection, adOpenDynamic' Set the required fields for the dbcombodbCombo.RowSource = rowsourceRSdbCombo.Listfield = "name" ' Field for the listdbCombo.BoundColumn = "id"' Value field to pass backdbCombo.DataSource = datasourceRSdbCombo.DataField = "mytype" ' Field in the datasource to updateFrom here, the databinding should take care of updating your recordset.Hope this helps.
