Create Custom Field in a Message linked to a Microsoft Access Table

I have a Microsoft Access Database with 2 tables

Builders.........PrimaryKey......BName
Jobs...............PrimaryKey......JName...........ForeignKey.......BKeyName

I would like to create a custom Outlook Message Form that has 3 Custom Fields:

Builder.........drop down from the access table above
Job................drop down from the access table above
Lot#.............Simple Text Box Not linked to anything

All of the fields are optional

If any of the fields have data in them, I would like the subject line to begin with Builder:XXXXXXXX Job:YYYYYY Lot#:ZZZZZZZ.......followed by anything the user wants to type.

What I am really looking for is a starting point on how to create the drop down list or combo box and am hoping. I am fairly comfortable with VBA in MSAccess.

when you drop a combo box into your Access form, there should be a Wizard pops up to help you link that to a data source. Don't you see it?

I may not have been clear on this, but I am working in Outlook, not Access. The data is in Access. I am trying to create a custom message form in Outlook
