 I would like to know how to fill the second column of the combo box contol in the Microsoft Forms 2.0 Object Library.
 I can display the 2 columns, and I can display the headers for each column, but I cannot fill the second column with any information.  Some sample code would be great.

   Also, how do you fill the headers?

You must use the ColumnHeads property with the ListFillRange, Control Source, or Row Source properties to populate the headings.  These properties depend on data objects such as Excel worksheets.  You cannot populate the headings using properties or methods available in the Combobox itself.

Here is one way to populate multiple columns:

Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim data(9, 1) As String
Dim i

For i = 0 To 9
    data(i, 0) = CStr(i)
    data(i, 1) = "foo"
Next i
With ComboBox1
    .ColumnCount = 2
    .List() = CVar(data)
End With
End Sub
