    problem to create source for combo box

    Hi All.
    I created part of my Inventory database that give ability add devices to the system. Now I added new tblRequest table that will be source for fRequest form. That form will using to save a new device requests. In the relationship I linked tblDevices table to tblRequests table. But I cannot figure out how create source of data for cboDevice combo box in new fRequest form. I would like before select according device first of all to filter data by Brand then by DeviceType and finally select device with according device type, brand and model and then save a correct DeviceID value to tblRequest table. I will appreciate if someone will show how it to do. The attachment contains database file.



    Thanks.

    You do it exactly the same like in your other form; you need to add your three unbound cascading combos (for brand, type and model) then you requery the DeviceID in its enter or got focus event to take into account your previous selections.
