Hi, guflori.

Here's how to do this.

1.  Open your custom form in the form editor
2.  Select the page you want to add the control to
3.  Click the Control Toolbox button on the ribbon
4.  Select the ComboBox control
5.  Draw a new combobox on the form
6.  Right-click the control and select Properties
7.  Select the Value tab
8.  Connect the control to a field
9.  Fill the Possible values field in with a semicolon separated list of values to present in the control

I've attached a screen shot showing what the settings should look like.
