Yes.

In the 'another combobox' use the afterupdate event procedure to enable or disable the dependent combo.

If isnull(me.anothercomboboxname) then
me.dependentcombo.enabled = false
else
me.dependentcombo.enabled = true
end if

I take it the 2nd combobox will need enabled property set to false?

I currently have code in the form current property which locks the dependant combo if the other is blank but it seems to be locked eitger way.

Yes,  the initial setting  in design  view should be false.

If the same form is used to browse records you need exactly the same code in the form_current event procedure.
