    Help with forms


    I am new to access and need to create a form that will do a look-up for a combo box. Example: When a Main category is selected, I need the sub category combo box to limit the options to only sub categories affiliated with the main category. I think I do this in the form, but have been unsuccessful in my attempts. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
