Hi i have a problem where i want to use 2 radio buttons to view sum data related to them. e.g. if i select DVD then all the dvd's listed in my database must display, and if select CD then all cd's will be displayed on my data grid(2 radio buttons 1.DVD 2.CD). The problem is that the details of DVD and CD are in a column name called "Album_types".

So how do i view my data by selecting either options to view the related information in my data grid?

Please post your code you have so far. So will come to know your approach to show records.

Posted codn but no reply...

This is my coding to selecting radio buttons:
I also want to know , if possible how am i able to refresh my combo box's ,as i have it linked to another form where data is added about a particular album and is searched in this form.

But it does not update to the combo box's if i add or delete a new record.

my combo box's are set to drop down list as want to read the data not to be able to be deleted while searching for the information
