There is a way to pupulate the combo box with the values from your XML files. The following article will show you how to access the database at run time: www.acresso.com/webdocuments/PDF/msiaccess.pdf.
basically you need to create a VBscript to read the attribute values of your elements into an array and then put each item into the ComboBox table.
