Does it have to be a list box?  If not, use the Listview, which allows you to set up the desired columns.  If you add the component 'Microsoft Windows Common Controls' it will be available to your project

A listbox has columns a combobox doesn't, you can create your own combo box control with a button that has the combobox drop down arrow a textbox and a listbox with multiple columns, write events for the conrtol and there you go a combobox with multiple columns.

You can try using the combobox found in the MS Forms 2.0 library, but that one has restricted use (any machine where it's used must have an MS Office license.)

Just realized you wanted a combo box.  What type of data are you trying to display to the user?
