I have a dropdown combo box (style 2) which varies in number of items in list depending on another selection made on form.  I want to clear it between records.  This works OK when number of items increases, but when the list goes down to one or two items, the box stays large and will not close on form.  I am left with a large empty list box below the new one that loads - and no way to close it.
