Description kelvine 2003-04-10 13:52:13 UTC
I was wondering is it possible to have multiple columns in a combo box on a 
This is a feature I use extensively in MS Access and I find it does not exist 
in most other products with Forms.

It is in fact a feature by which I review all other packages which shows how 
convenient and powerful it is.

In MS Access it is possible to have multiple columns.
Nominated which column is bound
Nominate the widths of the columns so that if the first column is a code and 
the second column is a description, the code set to zero width and thus hidden.

No other product have I seen that allows for multiple columns in a combo box 
in a Table Control which can also be included in a sub form.

Should you need any further information please do not hesistate to ask.

IMO, we need this anyway for MS interoperability - MS users are used
to this feature.
