  • Hi MARVIN,

    Sorry for this delay in reply.

    First of all, you need to install Microsoft Access Database Engine

    Then you can bind database to combox box through the following steps:

    1,select your combox box>> click the triangle >> select Use Data Bound Items

    2,Data Source, click Add Project Data Source in the drop-down box >> choose the database,click next>>choose dataset>>click new connection..>>click change..>>select Microsoft Access Database File,click OK>>Browser your source file(.accdb file) ,click OK>>Click OK, click next>>select your table in your database>>click finish

    Note: If you fail to add it, please click this to troubleshoot it.

    3,Display Member : item in the datasource that is displayed in the ComboBox items

    4,Value Member : The corresponding data for items in the datasource

    Hope it can be helpful.

    Best Regards,
