Access dropdown menu in tabular form column

Hi

In my Access tabular form shown below I want users to be able to select a Part number from a drop down menu that gets its data off the Parts table.
How do I do this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There are 2 options really, both done in design view:

1 Select the Part No textbox control, right click, goto Change to.. and select combobox.

2 Select the Part No textbox control, delete it, add a combobox control in it's place.

With option 1 you would need to amend the properties, e.g. RowSource, etc, of the combobox yourself, with option 2 you should get a wizard that will guide you through the process of setting things up.
