Default Building cascading lookups in an Access 2007 table

Similar to a previous post with forms ....

I am trying to build cascading lookups (combo boxes) in an Access 2007 table.
I have two combo boxes. While in the table, one combo box is filled with
categories and other with subcategories. Now, I want to populate the second
combo box lookup with only those subcategories based on the categories in the
first combox box lookup. How can I do this?

Thanks in advance,
Best Regards,

ORMA

AFAIK you can't. Easy on a Form of course. Table datasheets and combo boxes
are *very* limited.
