It depends a bit on how exactly you are using the combobox.
It is designed so that you can have a separate display value
(eg: the field may be a choice between 1, 2, 3 but the display
might be "first", "second", "third"). For use on grids you
would normally provide a calculated field that defines this
alternative/display value. (See the help info for DisplayField
in the online help for TIB_CustomComboBoxEnh for an example.)

If you are not doing a translation it may be necessary to set
the DisplayField property to the same field as the DataField.

If that does not help then if you are able to reproduce the
problem in a simple sample, perhaps on the employee.fdb
database, and send the form to me I will take a better look.
