Getting value in a combobox based another combo.

How can I populate the combo2 from the value in combo1 both of these values are obtained from database. The following code is suppsed to do it however the program doesnt read this code when I change the selection in combo1

Private Sub CmbState_Change()   <---Is this the right function name?
Dim conn
Dim rec
Dim myvalue

myvalue = Me.CmbState.Text

Set conn = New ADODB.Connection
Set rec = New ADODB.Recordset
conn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Database.mdb;Persist Security Info=False"
esql = "select BAT from Dataset where STATE = " & myvalue & ";"
rec.Open (esql), conn, adOpenStatic, adLockReadOnly
If rec.RecordCount > 0 Then
    Do Until rec.EOF
        FacilitySelection.CmbBat.AddItem rec("STATE")
End If
Set conn = Nothing
