As you already aware of programming and how to access database . I would suggest you to create below procedure and run this from your code with parameter as your user selection from combobox

CREATE PROC [spGetTableData]( @tblname nvarchar(MAX))
  declare @cmd nvarchar(max)
  declare @parameters nvarchar(max)
  set @cmd = N'SELECT * FROM @tblname'
  set @parameters = '@tblname nvarchar(MAX)'
  EXEC sp_executesql @cmd, @parameters, @tblname = @tblname 

Hope this helps
