clearbeforefill ?

I don't understand this behavior in the code:

I'm filling various Combo Boxes  on a form: ""BELOW IS AN EXAMPLE WHEN THE COMBO BOX gets focus:

       frmShopHandMain.txtOPTimeLine_01.Visible = True
        'TODO: This line of code loads data into the 'Database1DataSet1.LaborOps' table. You can move, or remove it, as needed.
        frmShopHandMain.Database1DataSet11.EnforceConstraints = False

Open in new window

After selecting a button on the same form "The following code gets called"
       Me.RO_InvTableAdapter1.ClearBeforeFill = False
        Me.RO_InvTableAdapter1.FillByVerifyRO_Exists(DbseRO_InvDataSet.RO_Inv, RoNum_Ln1)

Open in new window

when I set the CLEARBEFOREFILL method to "False" - EVERYTHING IS PRETTY MUCH OK for now, but
when I set the CLEARBEFOREFILL method to "True" - all of the above mentioned COMBOBOXES GET cleared out ???

the only COMMON DENOMINATOR here that I know of is the DATABASE THE THE SAME.
THE ADAPTERS, DATASETS are all different and I don't know why the form is being affected this way.???

Can anyone help me??
