I have a field that is a listbox on the form.  It stores the CODE but displays the DESCRIPTION.  

I'm making a report, for this field, I want to display the DESCRIPTION but the report field is showing the CODE (because that's what's stored in the field).  

On the report, I turned the field to a list control on the subform (which sits on the report), linking to that list and it's displaying the DESCRIPTION but it's also showing the dropdown arrow from the list... how do I make the data display in a textbox or get rid of the arrow on the list since this is a report.
