Hi, I want to start a project with using Visual Basic.

But I found that the combo box function in Access is very powerful as it can split column to display difference kind of information in several column, and indicate the primary key in hidden column.

Compare with VB's combo box, seem like it is hard to achieve.

I wonder is it possible to import Access Combo Box into VB project ?
Hopefully it is not a too silly question, i try search it from internet, but it just lack of information.

Thank you very much.

Regards,
xiaoytan

Yes. Add the component: Microsoft Forms 2.0 Object library to your project.

Note that if you do have Office installed then this should be already on your system. The file name is FM20.dll

Alternatively see how it works in this example:
