    Data binding database information to Form Controls can be a very confusing subject.  You are not alone.  I have found it most useful to create separate tables within SQL databases to bind a control.  It could also be done with views, but I find that I can alter the contents dynamically if I bind my controls to a table that contains a single column of the data I wish to present in my combo box. 


    BEWARE.  Sorting the contents of the table is tricky.  Binding to a view that performs a sort will not do the trick.
