I have two comboboxes on a form.  The first one is named cboTYPE.  Depending on the selection made in this combobox I want to filter the available choices in the 2nd combobox.

For example, if the user selects "Football" in the 1st combobox, then I want the option to select only "Brown" in the 2nd combobox.  But if the user selects "Tennis Ball" in the 1st combobox then I want either "Yellow", "Green", or "Purple" to show up in the 2nd combobox.

How can I do this?

There are a number of options.  The one I use is:

Change the WHERE clause in the RowSource  query for the dependent combo to reference the parent combo.

Where Type = Forms!yourform!cboType

Then in the AfterUpdate event of cboType, requery the dependent combo.

Me.cboTeam.Requery
