creating a combo box with a pull-down menu


P

Parrish

I have a fixed list which is way too big for a List Box
and I don't like scrolling (eliminating a simple Combo
Box), so my solution is to create a Combo Box with a pull-
down menu. Only, I can't find how to in the program Help
section.

Secondarily, I want to take the values that I put in the
combo box and convert the to numeric values (like what an
Option Box allow you to do). I am working off an already
existing form and would rather not have to re-create the
whole thing, but I will if I have too.

I'm running Access '97, 2000 or XP (I have access to all
three).

Thanks for your help in advance.

I have no idea what this means. A ComboBox has an arrow and when you click on it the
list drops down so you can make a selection. Where does a pull-down menu come into
play?

What I mean when I say pull-down is actually drop-down
box. I don't want to have to scroll down thru the options
but rather have them all appear (like what a pull-down or
drop-down menu does in Windows. Is there any way to make
the list dimensions larger so that all items are shown
simultaneously??

Set the ListRows property.
