Change your form recordsource to be a query with these comboboxes as criteria for each relevant field. I would suggest using the "Build" feature in the query design to get the form control reference format correct.

You will want to put a requery into your comboboxes somewhere, depending on how you want it to work... I would use AfterUpdate event, myself.
