Imar,

That is an excellent solution. In my example, I wasn't actually binding the combobox to anything. I had a pre-generated list of U.S. states, which was one of the fields in a database. I used it for an update form to determine which state was entered in the database, then selected it. Since the states were alphabetical and indexed at 0, it wasn't hard to set the SelectedIndex when a match was made.

I would definitely agree with Ron in saying that information on this subject was extremely hard to find. I came up with my solution about 3 months ago and spent much time Googling and looking through MSDN before I decided to go my route. Anyway, good forum and good job to both of you for shedding more light on this subject.
