you can only assign 1 to show in the db combo.  you could buy 3rd party controls to do this.  true dbcombo is a good one.  you could also not use a data bound combo and concatinate the 2 fields together in a string and then add the string to the combo box.

Here is a work around.

You can write a query for example:

Select Code || '  ' || Desc as CodeDesc from table1. (Basically the select statement is combining the two
fields to one field, this syntax should work for Oracle, you might have to tweak it for other databases)

Then set the ListField property of the dbcombo to "CodeDesc" field of the resultset.

just had to rewrite for t-sql. select x+y as z from source.
BTW: Most people get a little peeved when you propose answers as it locks the question. SOP here is always propose as a comment.
