I need help using an unbound datasheet in Access 2013

Last Modified: 2014-12-28
I Experts,
I have two tables in my Access 2013 application (tblEmployee and tblJob).  The tables are joined by the EmployeeID field.
I have a form with an unbound Combo box control that lists all of the employee names from table tblEmployee.
On the combo box's On Change event I want to run a query that will populate an unbound datasheet using the query below.  How do I do this?
1. How do I create the unbound datasheet in Access 2013?
2. How do I populate my unbound datasheet using the query below on the Combo Box's On Change event?  
SELECT E.Name, E.Phone, J.* FROM tblEmployee as E, tblJob as J WHERE E.EmployeeID = cboEmployee.value and E.EmployeeID = J.EmployeeID
