Hey :)

How do I load data from a Access DB into a combobox?

Heres my code if anyone is intrested:

Public Class Reparaciones
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

#Region " Windows Form Designer generated code "

    Public Sub New()
        MyBase.New()

        'This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.
        InitializeComponent()

        'Add any initialization after the InitializeComponent() call

    End Sub

    'Form overrides dispose to clean up the component list.
    Protected Overloads Overrides Sub Dispose(ByVal disposing As Boolean)
        If disposing Then
            If Not (components Is Nothing) Then
                components.Dispose()
            End If
        End If
        MyBase.Dispose(disposing)
    End Sub

    'Required by the Windows Form Designer
    Private components As System.ComponentModel.IContainer

    'NOTE: The following procedure is required by the Windows Form Designer
    'It can be modified using the Windows Form Designer.  
    'Do not modify it using the code editor.

    Public dtr As OleDb.OleDbDataReader


    Public Sub abrir_bd()

        conexion = New OleDb.OleDbConnection(cadena_conexion)
        If conexion.State = ConnectionState.Closed Then conexion.Open()
    End Sub

    Public Sub cerrar_bd()

        If conexion.State = ConnectionState.Open Then conexion.Close()
        conexion = Nothing
        comando = Nothing
    End Sub

End Module

I need help ASAP and urgent.
