Controls in Word cannot be bound, so you would have to use VBA to walk through the datasource. If you use ADO, the code would be similar for either.

Is the combobox to be on a userform or on the document? You can put ActiveX Controls on a document, but they  aren't designed for that purpose, so  a content control would be better there.

are you referring to a combo-box as a Content Control Item, or a combo-box in a user form?
