As per my first post, we had to rename all columns that are used in ComboBox controls to begin with AA, ie renamed StaffName to AAStaffName so that the ComboBox would reset to that column, first column in the alphabetical order. Otherwise it would typically reset to ComplianceAssetId column which in most cases was the first column...
