Dependent Combo Box
The Access dependent combo box is one of the first techniques a new programmer must master. Hopefully the downloadable example will save you a lot of time figuring out your first dependent dropdown list code.

Did you know you don't need to move to SQL/Server to run and manage your Access database on the net. There are many alternative solutions. Among them are Amazon's AWS cloud services and various hosting services in nearly every state.
This example demonstrates the tables, queries and form programming needed to setup a
combo box dropdown list dependent on the values in another combo box.
Here is a snapshot of the code contained in the database:
Main combo after update event:
Private Sub Advisor_Combo_AfterUpdate()
Record source for the dependent combo:
SELECT M_Students.Student FROM M_Students WHERE (((M_Students.Advisor_ID)=[Forms]![F_Combo]![Advisor_Combo]))
You will also need an on current event which also requeries the dependent combo box. This is needed to coordinate the dependency when going from record to record in data review mode.
