Can I make a combo-box "drop- down" by using code? Like it does when the "select and item from the list" message appears after the notintlist event?

In code for the form with the combo on it, (let's say it's called cboData), use

     Me!cboData.Dropdown

If the combo is on a form and the code is not part of that form, (let's say the form is called frmData), use

    Forms!frmData!cboData.Dropdown

If the cobo is on a subform, and the code is part of the main form, and the control with the subform in it is called ctrlSubform, use

    Me!ctrlSubform.Form!cboData.Dropdown
