vb.net combobox binding to ms access


Is there a simple way to bind a vb.net 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

Take a look on this site on the ADO.NET section :


There are a lot of examples !

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.
