You can simply set its Text property.

DataCombo1.Text = "oranges"

Yes it is!

Place an ADODC control, a DataCombo control, a TextBox and a command button control on a form (without changing any properties). Then paste this code to your form (Do not forget to change the path to the Nwind database):

Option Explicit

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    DataCombo1.Text = Text1.Text
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
    With Adodc1
        .ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\Nwind2000.mdb;Persist Security Info=False"
        .RecordSource = "SELECT * From Categories"
        .Refresh
    End With
   
    With DataCombo1
        Set .RowSource = Adodc1.Recordset
        .ListField = "CategoryName"
    End With
   
    Text1.Text = "Confections"
End Sub
