Building a Table with Filters

I have four combo boxes, an add item button, a delete item button and a list box. When the add item is pushed I read the four
combo boxes and format a string to add to the list box. This simplistic approach is not very user friendly, I would like to build a
table of four columns and be able to filter each column by the parameters that I specify.

The four Combo Boxes have drop downs that give the user available choices, I have named the Combo Boxes DEVICES, PARAMETER,
VALUE and COUNT.

My columns would consist of the following HEADERS: THE CHOICES FOR EACH COLUMN will come from the combo boxes.
DEVICES          PARAMETER       VALUE          COUNT

Can someone point me to examples that do something similar, or make suggestions on the best way to implement this.

thanks
