    I am having great problems understanding cascasding combo boxes. Basically, I have 2 fields in 1 table.
    CarManu
    CarType

    I would like in a form if the user selects a specific car manufacturer, they would only be able to select specific cars made by their choice.
    As much as I have tried reading over many forums on this, I am getting nowhere. Maybe I need this explained to me as though I am a 2 year old lol.

    Can anyone help?

    Many thanx

    You are going to need two tables or it will never work correctly and will eventually give you trouble. Make one table for manufacturer's only and onother for the type that has a joined field to the manufacturer's table. Then you will have a one manufacturer to many types relationship. Get that done and the rest is cake.
