dbcombo cannot be a multi-column control. for a multi-column control you'll have to use dbgrid control. with the dbgrid control you can specify which columns will be populated with what fields(columns) from the database. the alternative is to use a 3rd party vendor such as sharadon db controls or apexes true db grid. they have multi-column drop downs, however, these controls are not for the novice or amateur. their documentation is pitiful at best and was most likely written by a blind monkey on lsd. unless you have a thorough understanding of bound controls you'll be quickly overwhelmed. if you understand bound controls and can read between the lines of their documentation and logically figure out for yourself what their writer is really saying, then these controls are fairly easy to use.

hope this helps.
