The program I'm working on would use the value of ComboBox1 to filter the results of ComboBox2, i'm using an MS access db that has two tables:
1- Countries, which contains:: countryID, countryName
2- Projects, which contains:: ProjectName, CountryID

ComboBox1 contains a list of the countries, which i managed to do using a dataset
When a user chooses a country,  ComboBox2 should only display the projects within the chosen country.

Please help.

I'd like to know how that's done. I know i should filter the results using an sql query and enter the results into a dataset, but I don't know how to do that.
