Just wondering if it's possible to have the Text property of a combobox bound to datasource A, while having the list of combobox Items bound to datasource B.

To go into a little more detail, I'm designing an edit form for a record, where all controls are bound to fields in a single record datasource (A).  The Text value of the combo box is "A.Type" (for example).

I want the list of available combo Items to be its own separate datasource which is basically "select distinct Type".  This would become datasource B.
