Default Filtering Data from one Combo Box to another

I'm unsure if this is the right place to ask but I'v managed to create a very small sample database within VWD and have created two Combo Boxes based on a 'Make' table and a 'Model' table.

Within the VMD Database I'v added the relevant data to these tables and linked them up with a query.

I'v searched around using the help files but I'm kinda stuck and was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction.

I want the first combo box to select a Model and the based on the value I have selected, I want the next combo box to display the relevant data.

At the moment they just list whatever data is in the tables I'v linked them up to.

Not really. This forum is for the book Beginning ASP.NET and I don't think your question is related to that. You're probably better off posting this in the general Beginning ASP.NET forum as more people will be able to help you out there: http://p2p.wrox.com/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=348

That said, Google for "cascading drop down list asp.net". You'll find a number of useful articles. You'll also find the AJAX toolkit which has a handy cascading drop down list extender to make this pretty easy.

Did you resolve the error with the CheckBoxList?
