Although I'm really into soccer I'm not sure if I really got it.
Since there is a fixed (well quite fixed) number of Soccer fields I
think you (should) have stored them in a separate table.

So why don't you use a TIB_LookupCombo that's just bound to your other
table by the KeyLinks and KeySource?

That's easier than populating a TIB_ComboBox manually (even if this
still doesn't give you a solution to the existing problem)
