and what's the problem with the combo ?
it also has Anchors property
although you can't resize it's Height !
only width
you can change the height of the combo with it's font size

anything else ? :)

The control will resize in the Outlook form i put it in, but after I publish the outlook form the size does not save, I have to manually set the size of the combo on the Open event of the form.?
