If the box you are referring to is a combo box the for the rowsource query you need a expression field in the query which concatenates the forst name and last name from the separate first name and last name fields in the relevant underlying table - In Design select box and press F4 for the poperties

This is the syntax I am using on the field.  I need to get it to read first and lastname together

SELECT [Contacts Extended].[Last Name], [Contacts Extended].[First Name], [Contacts Extended].ID
FROM [Contacts Extended]
ORDER BY [Contacts Extended].[Last Name], [Contacts Extended].[First Name], [Contacts Extended].ID;

In your ComboBox, what is the Bound Field (Employee ID, Last Name, etc.)???

Can you upload a sample db in Access 2000 format???

Also, I would change the Bound Field to a Unique ID field so you will handle duplicate last names properly.

You'll need to change the layout of your combo for the different nomber of columns...

Something like:

SELECT [Contacts Extended].[Last Name] & " " & [Contacts Extended].[First Name] AS FullName, [Contacts Extended].ID
FROM [Contacts Extended]
ORDER BY [Contacts Extended].[Last Name], [Contacts Extended].[First Name], [Contacts Extended].ID;
