Build Relational Combo Boxes in Microsoft Access
In this Microsoft Access tutorial, you will learn how to build relational combo boxes. These are combo boxes that get their list of values from a table or query. The benefit is that you don't have to constantly update multiple combo boxes on different forms, and you can pick from a list of options from another table in your database, such as a list of customers on your order form. This template includes an 16 minute video tutorial and a full editable template.
If you'd like to download a sample copy of the database template, you can do so here. This is a non-editable version of the template which will let you see it work in action. Sample database available for 64-bit version of Access only.

Once you have purchased the full developer database template, come back to this page and click on the Download button below. This will give you access to the ZIP file containing the Template ACCDB file. The full version will run on 32-bit or 64-bit versions of Access.
