    combo box display (2003)

    Hi all, quick question: am I able to display more than one column in a combo box. For example, I have a combo box which displays 4 columns. They show when you use the pull-down arrow on the combo box, but once the record is selected, the combo box will only show one column......i'd like all 4 to remain visible. Is this possible? thanks, Van

    Nope. The text box part of the combo box will only display the first column whose width is non-zero.
    Alternatives:
    1) Concatenate the values you want to display in a single column of the combo box.
    2) Use a list box instead of a combo box. List boxes can display multiple columns.

    Or put unbound textboxes next to the combo box and set their control sources to expressions like:
    =ProgramCode.column(1)
