Combo Box with only unique values

I have a combo box on a form. It is based off a query

SELECT [qry_vluVendorAddress].[VendorName], [qry_vluVendorAddress].[VendorID], [qry_vluVendorAddress].[CityName], [qry_vluVendorAddress].[MailState], [qry_vluVendorAddress].[CountryCode] FROM qry_vluVendorAddress ORDER BY [VendorName];

How do I get the Combo Box to not show Duplicates?

Not the query I listed above was created just for the Combo box list (based on two tables). So I can do what ever is needed to get a list that only has unique records

Thanks

Re: Access: Combo Box with only unique values

One way is to group the records via an Aggregate Query.
You do this by grouping by all the fields in your Select clausei.e.
Code:
[COLOR=#333333]SELECT [qry_vluVendorAddress].[VendorName], [qry_vluVendorAddress].[VendorID], [qry_vluVendorAddress].[CityName], [qry_vluVendorAddress].[MailState], [qry_vluVendorAddress].[CountryCode] 
FROM qry_vluVendorAddress 
[/COLOR][COLOR=#ff0000]GROUP BY [qry_vluVendorAddress].[VendorName], [qry_vluVendorAddress].[VendorID], [qry_vluVendorAddress].[CityName], [qry_vluVendorAddress].[MailState], [qry_vluVendorAddress].[CountryCode] [/COLOR][COLOR=#333333]
ORDER BY [VendorName];[/COLOR]
