Hi  I am using Access 2010

I have a table with two fields.  

Table Name :  MyTable

Table fields below..
[Transaction Type]     ...  Text field
[Type ID]               ...  Numeric field

On my form,  I have a combobox.  I would like the dropdown selection to show table entries of [Transaction Type]  where  [Type ID] > 2

I would like to do this in the Form Load event.  I appreciate your help.
