Is there a simple way to bind a combobox to a ms access table?

And if you have two comboboxes on a form, how do you bind the second combobox to the same table displaying data using the dis played data from the first combobox as the criteria?

Thanks in advance

    You asked for a simple way.  My answer would be 'no'.  I know there are no points in that.  I have to ask.  Can you explain more about this second combo box and its purpose.  I am thinking the use of text boxes to show the returned data.

    The the first combo box contains a collection of static Data, and the second combo box will query the database searching for a "department" according to the "site" that was picked in the combo box.
