I am populating the Combobox list like this:
With rsContacts
        While Not .EOF
             
                cboContrProgramType.AddItem .Fields("ProgramDesc")
                cboContrProgramType.ItemData(cboContrProgramType.ListCount - 1) = .Fields("ProgramCode")
             
            .MoveNext
        Wend
    End With

On the form I see the "ProgramDesc".  AFter I made a selection how should I pass the ("ProgramCode") back to the database.

This is a foreign key in the table.

Change code to

Using cboContrProgramType.ListCount - 1 is not wrong but NewIndex is preferred.
With rsContacts
        While Not .EOF
             
                cboContrProgramType.AddItem .Fields("ProgramDesc")
                cboContrProgramType.ItemData(cboContrProgramType.NewIndex) = .Fields("ProgramCode")
             
            .MoveNext
        Wend
    End With


retrieving ProgramCode
 cboContrProgramType.ItemData(cboContrProgramType.ListIndex)
