Combo Boxes in Gridview (or similar)

    Hi
    I'm trying to find a way that I can have a gridview type of control, but
    with added combo boxes.

    I have a scenario in Access where I'm using a continuous form; a text box on
    the left displays a student name and then I have four combo boxes which allow
    various options to be selected. The data for combos comes from a single table
    (non updateable), but the continuous form writes the selected data to another
    separate table.

    i.e. Options (writes the full record, pupil + 4 options), subjects
    (filtered) populate the combo boxes.

    I can't seem to find a similar approach in VWD. Any suggestions/creative
    work arounds are greatly received.

    Cheers

    I found the edit template option - although I'm getting a debug error to say
    that the value isn't in the list...although I've set my datasource and bound
    to correct field?
