I have a Input ComboBox with the list bound to a sql binding source "bsStaffList" and I want to retreive and save the value from and to the customer binding source bsCustomerDetails - StaffID

Cant seem to work out how to do that. I['ve tried a few combo-nations :) no sucess so far.

Also tried values in  SelectedIndeax and SelectedValue with no sucess.

Can anyone help ?


Me.ipCbCSO.DataSource = "bsStaffList"
        Me.ipCbCSO.DisplayMember = "name"
        Me.ipCbCSO.ValueMember = "bsCustomerDetails - StaffID"  <<- ????

You cannot do that way!
You have do define the DisplayMember and ValueMember for the DataSource you have defined and not another one.

No, you have to join the information in only one datasource
