Default Populate combo box with access db with using ADO

I am very new to making VB applications although I have a fair amount of experience with ASP. I want to populate a dropdown combo box with all the users in my database which is situated in the same directory as the application.

I am unsure of the coding but I would assume that you would have to locate the db like:

App.Path & "\despatcher97.mdb"

and the SQL statement would be as follows:

strSQL = "select * from Users order by Name"

and with my experience with ASP I assume the population part would be something like:

    Combo1.AddItem .Fields("Username").Value
    Combo1.ItemData(Combo1.NewIndex) = .Fields("Ident").Value
  Loop Until .EOF

I am just unsure how you would fit it all together.
Any help with this matter would be greatly received.

With many thanks for your time and assistance,

Try this code :
--- first set your recordset vars ----------
I assume the Rec Var with --> RC
strSQL = "select * from Users order by Name"
rc.Open strsql,cn,2,1

if not rc.EOF then
      while not rc.EOF
            combo1.additem rc!username
   set rc = nothing
end if
