Table1: List for the Combobox
Table2: Table to be updated
How do I get the items/list of a combobox from Table1 so as when TAble1 is updated all the combobox connected to that table will also be updated? The combobox will also be used to update Table2, like when I click an Add button and choose an item from the combobox and then click Update button, the item from the combobox together with other fields will be added as a new record for Table2. Hope somebody could help me ASAP. Thanks.

As Kretschmar say you must use a TdDlookupCombobox, because this component has a Source and Target.
DataSource:The Table where the field to update is located.
DataField:The field to Update.

ListSource:The Table where the field is located.
ListField:List of fields to show separeted with ;
KeyField:The Field to Update in the source.

Best Regards.
Marcos.
