I have two forms in c#.. in 1 form(form1) i have a text box to get name from user..i wish to get the same name to be displayed in another forms(form2) combo box's item. how do i do it? i am using Access as database.

As far as I know, Access is irrelevant unless you are going to store the info in a database and retrieve it in a different form - which is not the most obvious or efficient way to do it!

You want to create a property on the second form to accept the name:
public string UserName { get; set; }

Then set the value before you display the Form2 from Form1:
Form2 f2 = new Form2();
f2.UserName = myTextBox.Text;
In the setter of the UserName Property, you can set the ComboBox value - and use the getter to retrieve the currently selected item.
