Mulitple Visible Combo box Columns

In MS Access...you used to be able to define a column count and show mulitple columns when you drop down a combo box.

Currently all I see is that a combo box in VB.NET can have a Visible member and a Value member.

I currently get around it by building strings that contain all the values I need for the visible member, but the formatting is not pretty because you cannot define the width of each column like you could in MS Access....is there a way of doing it....here is a sample

Mine currently (build supplier string with name and address)
---------------------------------------------------------------------
HERTZ EQUIPMENT RENTAL -> 11915-34 ST, EDMONTON, AB
AIR LIQUIDE -> 12121-44 ST, CALGARY, AB

What I want (formatted and hopefully separate values not having to build a string containing all values)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HERTZ EQUIPMENT RENTAL    11015-34 ST, EDMONTON, AB    
AIR LIQUIDE                           12121-44 ST, CALGARY, AB
