            Int32 comID = 0;

            using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(Connectionstring.Connection))

            {

                string query = "select CompanyID from Table_Interaction where InteractionID='" +Convert.ToInt32( InteractionID.ToString() )+ "' ";

                using (SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(query, con))

                {

                    con.Open();

                    SqlDataReader reader = cmd.ExecuteReader();

                    if (!reader.HasRows) return;

                    while (reader.Read())

                    {

                        comID=Convert.ToInt32(string.Format("{0}",reader[0]));

                        string query2 = "select CompanyName from Table_Client where CompanyID=@param";

                        SqlCommand cmd2 = new SqlCommand(query2, con);

                        cmd2.Parameters.AddWithValue("@param", comID);

                        SqlDataReader reader1 = cmd2.ExecuteReader();

                        if (!reader1.HasRows) return;

                        while (reader.Read())

                        {

                            comboBox_client.Text = string.Format("{0}", reader1[0]);

                        }





                    }

                }

I think you'll find you can only execute 1 select command at a time per connection object. Fire up another connection and use that for your second query.

Certainly not the "Best" way. It's a bit wasteful to use 2 connections when they're not needed. The "multiple active result set" (see vs00saini's links above)  seems ideal for this situation, but without knowing what version of ADO.NET you're using I can't say if they will work.

Another alternative is to copy the data locally into an array of some sort and loop through that, keeping in mind to only have 1 connection/command going at once.

SqlDataReader will not let you use its connection with another SqlDataReader while its still open, why not try using a DataTable for the first query then loop through the rows of the DataTable obj then execute your second query.

This is a sample code
===================
string connstr = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["dbconn"].ConnectionString;
SqlConnection c = new SqlConnection(connstr);
c.Open();
SqlDataAdapter adapter1 = new SqlDataAdapter("select * from table1", c);
DataTable dt1 = new DataTable();
adapter1.Fill(dt1);
foreach (DataRow dr in dt1.Rows)
{
           int id = int.Parse(dr["acc_class_fk"].ToString());
           SqlDataAdapter adapter2 = new SqlDataAdapter("select * from table2 where id = "+id+"", c);
           DataTable dt2 = new DataTable();
           adapter2.Fill(dt2);
}
c.Close();

note dbconn is a connectionstring entry in the webconfig
