I need to repeat that a control is *set* driven. You can't arbitrarily populate it will fields from different tables.

Perhaps you would like to go to and download the two papers there on using IB Objects controls. One of them has a "walk-through" of the logic of both setting up and using TIB_LookupCombo. The key concepts for this control are "double-data-aware" and "lookup".

Also please look up the helpfile for TIB_LookupCombo.
