Private Sub cboDestinationCountryID_AfterUpdate()

strServiceClass = "Domestic"

If Me.cboOriginCountryID.Column(1) = "Canada" And Me.cboDestinationCountryID.Column(1) = "Canada" Then

strServiceTypeCanada = "SELECT [tblFedExServices].[ServiceTypeID], [tblFedExServices].[ServiceTypeDescription], " & _
                    "[tblFedExServices].[ServiceClass] WHERE [ServiceClass] = " & Chr$(39) & strServiceClass & Chr$(39)
                   
                                       
                    Me.cboServiceTypeID.RowSource = strServiceTypeCanada

You're referring to the SECOND column of your combo. The Columns collection for a combo is zero-based.

Are you sure you want to refer to that column?

If instead you want to refer to the FIRST column, then use Column(0).

That said: Your code should work, assuming you've spelled everything correctly, and your "strServiceTypeCanada" statement is formed correctly.

Note too you don't need to Requery cboServiceTypeID. Setting the RowSource is sufficient.

Column(0) is the ID and Column(1) is the text description of the service. I need the service description to show in the Combo Box.

I am getting the error;

Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression '[tblFedExServices].[ServiceClass] WHERE [ServiceClass] = 'Domestic".

Tried this but no luck;

Dim strServiceTypeCanada As String
Dim strServiceClass As String

strServiceClass = "Domestic"

If Me.cboOriginCountryID.Column(0) = 1 And Me.cboDestinationCountryID.Column(0) = 32 Then

strServiceTypeCanada = "SELECT [tblFedExServices].[ServiceTypeID], [tblFedExServices].[ServiceTypeDescription], " & _
                    "[tblFedExServices].[ServiceClass] WHERE [ServiceClass] =  '" & strServiceClass & "'"
                   
                   
                                       
                    Me.cboServiceTypeID.RowSource = strServiceTypeCanada
