Nope. Those properties aren't available on a combo box. Can I ask why you want them? Typically a combo box only contains a small amount of data, so it shouldn't need to grow. If you're hoping you can make it disappear if there is nothing in it, then you can play with the .Visible property . . .

I went around playing with the visible properties as you mentioned. I noticed that you can insert a IsNull code I inserted the following code given to me by "BrainWren":
Me!Value.Visible = Not isnull(Me!Value)
This worked. Now I dont have to worry about Can Shrink or Grow anymore.
