you can check the row source of the combo box, either using the Dcount() function, if zero then it means no options available ,
or opening the rowsource as recordset and testing for recordset EOF=true which means no options

How about this:

Private Sub btnTestCombo_Click()
    If Me.cboTest.ListCount = 0 Then MsgBox "There are no options in the combo box"
End Sub
