Cannotopen any more databases

I was under the perhaps naive belief that with Access 2000 and greater,
combo could be populated by an ADO recordset, i.e. it's rowsource
could be an ado recordset.  When I go out and look, I am running into
methods that build up a string and the row source type is set to value
That is a rather useless solution in the majority of cases since the max
limit of characters in the list is around 2000.

Is it in fact possible to make the rowsource an ADO recordset or am I
delusional?  If possible, how is it done?  Example code would be nice.
