Hi Experts,
I have two comboboxes in which the user can select items used for a rowfilter. Both comboboxes have the option "all" in it. There are 4 options (all - all, all - specific, specific - all and specific - specific). I attached the code that works for the rowfilter.

However, I need to add to 2 additional comboboxes. The number of options now increases to 16, thus a lot of code with if statements. It there a way to make a single statement that recognizes the "all" option and does not use a filter in this case.

Hope somebody can prevent building a monstercode... thanks in advance, MB
Dim BookingView As DataView = Me.DataGridView1.DataSource
        If Me.ComboBox1.Text = "all" And Me.ComboBox2.Text = "all" Then
            BookingView.RowFilter = ""
        ElseIf Me.ComboBox1.Text = "all" Then
            BookingView.RowFilter = "Loadport LIKE '%" & Me.ComboBox2.Text & "%'"
        ElseIf Me.ComboBox2.Text = "all" Then
            BookingView.RowFilter = "Voyage LIKE '%" & Me.ComboBox1.Text & "%'"
            BookingView.RowFilter = "Voyage LIKE '%" & Me.ComboBox1.Text & "%' AND Loadport LIKE '%" & Me.ComboBox2.Text & "%'"
        End If
