    I have a form with a combo box with three columns. All three columns are of different widths and the field is bound to the shortest one. The only way I can get all three columns to show up is to make the form field very wide. But that takes up too much room on the form and looks kind of silly afterwards when all the field holds is a short number.
    Is there any way to make the drop down wider than the field on the form?
    I searched for info on this and can't find it. So either I'm asking too basic a question or I don't know how to phrase it!
    I'd appreciate any help you can give me on this. I've been reading the Dummies book for Access 2003 but it seems to be leaving out a lot of stuff like this. Any ideas on a more comprehensive but still understandable book?
    Thanks

    The combo box has a List Width property (in the Format tab of the Properties window). This determines the width of the dropdown list, and youcan set it to a larger value than the width of the control.
