Hey guys im new to this forum and your help would be very much appreciated. Didnt know where to post so sorry. Here is my situation: I have 2 forms. Using Visual Studio. On Form 1 there is a populated combo box. This was done so by running a query through it and populating it with PUZ_ID values from a data set. On form two there is a tool strip and below is a search query. I need to be able to select the value i want in the combo box on form 1, and launch a button that opens form 2, which has loaded the data that i binded onto the form. Anyone have any ideas/code or need me to clear this up a bit more? So i need to run something through a query, or make something public or what? Your help is much appreciated.
