I just got this fixed on my database, then I changed something on the combo and its not working.  Now it is showing the ID numbers on a different combo box.  

See the attached database on the Contact Form.  There are three combo boxes at the top.  It is the top right third box that is showing the id numbers rather than the description.  

How do I fix it?  I assume it is in the sql code.  What do I need to change with it.
