' unbind the current sourcesSet DataCombo1.DataSource = NothingSet DataCombo1.RowSource = Nothing' set the new binding - start with the string propertiesDataCombo1.DataField = "ProductID"    ' the bound field in master tableDataCombo1.BoundColumn = "ID"         ' the bound field in detail tableDataCombo1.ListField = "ProductName"  ' the display field in detail tableSet DataCombo1.RowSource = rsProducts ' the detail tableSet DataCombo1.DataSource = rsOrder   ' the master table
