Basically a DbCombobox has only DataField and DataSource it can sho data from a Table.

But DblookUpCombobox has a DaTasource and a ListSource its say you can show values from a table and save in anohter table the DataSource.

Best Regards.

a dbcombobox inserts the selected item as is in teh databasefield

a dblookupcombobox inserts the keyfield of the selected item from the lookuptable in the databasefield

any source you don't have, because usual all is adjusted at designtime -> no code needed

a sample configuration for the dblookupcombo

lets have a salut-table (two fields)

Salut_ID Salut_Text
1 Mister
2 Misstress
3 Miss
....

and a adresstable like

Adress_ID Salut_ID Name ...
1 1 Kretzschmar
...

now you can define for the Field Salut_ID from adress a lookup
to the saluttable

the property-entries in the dblookupcombobox are

Datasource -> TDatasource linked to the Adress-Dataset
DataField -> Field Salut_ID from Adress
KeyField -> Field Salut_ID from Table Salut
ListSource -> TDatasource linked to the Salut-Dataset
ListField -> Field Salut_Text from Salut
