DB into combo field

Last Modified: 2010-04-23
Can someone simply tell me how to add data to a combo box from my DB? The connection I am using is something like this;

                Sql = "SELECT * from tbl_User_Problem WHERE Problem_ID = " & Cell_ID ' Set up connection
                Dim cmd As New OleDbCommand(Sql, conn) ' Concatinate with connection string
                Dim dr As OleDbDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader

               While dr.Read ' Read contents for designtaed rows into Global Variables
                         GlobProblem_ID = dr.Item("Problem_ID")
