as combobox is included within vb, i think its not the combobox thats creating the problem. i suspect it to be xsome other control. are you getting any error when you try to open the form? in that case it should create a log file with the name of the form. if your form is saved as form1.frm then search for form1.log in the same directory where form1.frm is saved. post the contents from the log file here.

It came with VB. Not a third party one.

Multi column combobox?
may be its not the standard combo box. Must be control from microsoft forms library. check whether fm20.dll is there on the other m/c or not.

I sometimes had the same problem, also with other controls and I found out, that
the combobox contains items iserted in the properties window of VB,
resolution is to delete the combobox on the machine where the project works fine
and then add the combobox again, then fill the combobox from code.

Worked fine for me!
