I have a combo box I created using Netbeans and it was created in my main program.  I have added a class and I would like to add items into the combo box in the class I added but being the box was added in the main program the external class does not recognize the name of the combo box.  The class I would like to use is a separate file.

Set your own (new) ComboBoxModel on the combo box containing the items you want. From how you describe the extra class, are you sure you have it the right way around. i.e. are you sure you don't want to add items from the external class, rather than in it? If so, you need to create an instance of the external class and pass a reference of the combo or the combo box model to it
