Are you requerying the 2nd combo in the AfterUpdate of the 1st combo and in the forms OnCurrent events?

 You could also use the got focus event of the 2nd combo along with OnCurrent of the form, but the first makes more sense.

  Also in the query above, is the ArmType you are filtering on the bound value for the 1st combo?
