Access 2013 Combobox data

I must be tired.
I have a form with a bound combobox that returns a name and id, with bound column. The box displays the name and stores the id of the name in the bound table. When the form is opened on a particular record, one wants the combobox to display the record stored in its bound field.  Nothing I can do will convince it to act this way. It invariably overwrites the bound data in the table and displays the combobox empty.

I have tried unbinding the combobox and saving the data on a hidden text box on the form, then setting the value of the textbox to the combobox on load, but this also does not work.
I KNOW THIS IS POSSIBLE. Worse, I know it is simple, but my sleep addled brain can't figure it out.

So, when you navigate to a record, the combo box shows empty even though there is a valid value in the underlying record?  Are you sure you don't have any code that is causing the issue?  Rename the combo box and see if you get any compile errors.

SMH. Apparently someone introduced a sub that emptied the controls on load.
Wonder who could have done that?
Thank you!
