How to have lookup fields in dbgrid please (VB.NET 2003)

Would someone please explain how I can activate the pull down lookup fields
in a db grid.

I have created a SQL database within ACCESS and converted to SQL using the
upsize wizard.

The database consits of 5 tables. 4 of these are options that the main table
can select but I am unsure how to set up a column so that it looks up one of
the other databases (like a db linked combo box).

Thanks in advance.
