i need to link combobox2 with acssess database based on selected value from combobox1

What I have tried:

Cmd.Connection = conn 'open connection to database
Cmd.CommandText = "select * from Tabel where filed1= 'ComboBox1.selecteditem'"

        dr = Cmd.ExecuteReader
        While dr.Read
        End While

That won't work, use:
Cmd.CommandText = "select * from Tabel where filed1= '" & ComboBox1.selecteditem & "'"

But doing it this way is dangerous because of the risk of SQL injection, it is better to use a parameterized query.
Read about it here:

what about making double condition
i think i have also something wrong at syntax

Cmd.CommandText = "select * from Table1 where Filed1= '" & ComboBox1.SelectedItem & "' and Filed2= '" & ComboBox2.SelectedItem & "'"

The syntax looks ok to me, but of course I can't see your database so it might be that the datatypes of the Filed1 and Filed2 are different. Maybe you can check in Access and test with a query.
