Did you do a search of the forum?

I did and found some code in this post (don't know what ..Net framework it goes with).

Make sure the DataSource property is not set though, or else.

If that code doesn't work for you try the code on this page.

write a sql query which you want to use to fill combo in that use UNION and then bind it to the combo

for example: (select empname from employeemaster) union (select empname from empdetails)

then using datareader or dataset bind the values.
