In your project menu go to components. Select the forms 2.0 object. That adds a combo box that will allow multiple columns.

Then select the column count property, and set as needed. Then start adding variables. If you need more help please post as a comment. Do not forget to grade my answer with an A if it has helped you.

But then what is this Forms 2.0?  Where can I find information on it?  I don't have it.  Is it the same combo box as the one I have?  If there're differences, why are there?

If you select the new object, and hit F1, for help, it will bring up the docs for it. it is a frm20.hlp file i think.
