MS Access Form Link Combo Box

I have two combo boxes on a form. Combo1 and Combo2.

Combo1 has a SQL statement as it's rowsource and works as expected.

I would like for Combo2 to be populated based on the value selected from Combo1.

Which Combo1 event property should I use?  

What should the Combo2 row source be?  
?? Syntax ???
Combo2.RowSource = SELECT Column1, Column 2 FROM Table2 WHERE Table1.SelectedColumn = Combo2.Selectedvalue  

I can do this in c# using ASP.NET. MS Access is somewhat different.
I have not used MS Access since Version 2.0
A few hints will do.  I taught MS Access at a local community college 15 years ago.

Thanks,

Thanks,

That's how I remember it. Would you believe that I am a Microsoft Alumni?  I wrote the first tech article on this subject while on the MS Access 1.0 support team in Charlotte in 1991. In fact, I initiated the term "Cascading Combo Boxes".
