Cut and paste from the IBO Help:

This control allows a standard combo box to be bound to a data column.
The values of the drop-down list must be supplied by assigning them to
the Items property manually at design-time or run-time.

The ItemValues property can be used to provide a table of values to
store in the database instead of the entries listed in the Items
