    Unanswered: How Do I Make A Double Combo Box?

    I need to make a combo box so when it drops down and a brand is selected, a second drop-down menu appears with the models for that particular brand. I have no idea where to start with this. Can anyone help me out with this?

    The concept is called "cascading comboboxes" and here's an excellent site with an explanation as well as an example db:

    Scroll down until you find "Filter one Microsoft Access combobox based on another combobox selection"

    Good luck!
    Hope this helps!
