I'm new to Access, below is for sure an easy question:
 
In an access application, I create a query:
SELECT DISTINCTROW tblA.Selected, tblA.NUMBER, tblA.STATUS, tblA.Office From tblA

and use this query, I created a form (or datasheet):
Some database fields are combo box, like Office, Status, they are bound with a dropdown list of data.
Some database fields are textbox.

How is the combo box created by Access and where is the binding list from? Thanks a lot.

combo box wizard will apper
click on next--> select query -->pick your query here
select fields here which you want to populate in your combo box( at least 2, one which will show and another which will reference like any id)
