Using Combo Boxes to Display Data from Previous Combo Box select?

Context: Data Library Database, with 2 related Tables. 1 'Directories' & 2
'Files', with 1 Form called 'Locations' with 2 Combo Boxes pointing to both
Tables.
Problem: How to relate the combo boxes to show a subset of data related to a
previous selection made using a combo box. e.g. if a 'Directory' combo box
returns a value of say 'Directory 001' from the Directories Table, how do you
make the other Combo Box for 'Files' which is sourced from the 'Files' Table
and related to the 'Directory' Table, display the data that is only relevant
to the specific Directory selected. e.g. 001. What I would like to see is
only a sub set of Files associated with the 'Directory 001' e.g. Files 001-01
to 0010-10 in the list, and not all file records in the 'Files' Table to aid
the user narrow down the location of a particular library item.

Best regards,

J
