Cascading Combo Boxes: One Box Filters Another
In this video, I will show you how to set up cascading combo boxes. This is where the value selected in the first combo box will filter the results of the second combo box. For example, you choose a state in box one, and then box two will show only a list of cities from that state.
Liana from Honolulu, Hawaii (a Platinum Member) asks: When I'm entering in my customer's address, is there any way that I can pick the state first from a list of options, and then have the city combo box only show cities from that state? I have a very select list of city/state combinations that my company sells to, and it would be so much easier than typing these in every time. Thanks!
Members will learn how to display cascading combo boxes in a continuous form, and also how to perform the cascade without the need of an external query.

If you want to see another example of cascading combo boxes, watch my Vehicle Maintenance video. I show how to do the same thing with make and model for a car. Pick "Ford" and then only Ford models will show up in the model combo box;
