Default Binding a combo box to update a list view

Hi i am trying to retrieve information from two database tables so that the information can be used to update a listview. The only problem is that this requires me to bind a combo box and i have no idea how to do this so that it actually works.

Here is my code so far:

Private Sub populateCboClient()

        sourceData = New DatabaseConnection

        Dim dataSet As New DataSet

            ' Get all clients in a DataReader object
            sourceData.SQL = "qryClientName"

            sourceData.DataReader = sourceData.Command.ExecuteReader

            sourceData.FillDataSet(dataSet, "tblClients")

            ' check data exists
            If sourceData.DataReader.HasRows Then
                ' process all rows
                'While sourceData.DataReader.Read()

                'cboClient.Items.Add(sourceData.DataReader.Item("C liName"))
                cboClient.DataSource = sourceData.DataReader

                cboClient.DisplayMember = "qryClientName"
                cboClient.ValueMember = "CliAccountNumber"


                'End While

            End If


        Catch ExceptionErr As Exception

            ' cleanup
            sourceData = Nothing

            dataSet = Nothing

        End Try

    End Sub

I don't understand how to actually bind the information so that the Client Name is the piece of information showing in the cbo and Client Number is the piece of information being used to perform search to update List View.

Any ideas?
