I have an ADO recordset with 2 columns,

I want to populate this into a combo box.

I've tried using the .AddItems in a loop through the recordset but this only works with 1 column.

I'm using Access 2010.  Any ideas?

Can you post the code you were trying...? and post any errors you were getting...?
...and post the relevant properties of the combobox...

I am sure you were just missing something like setting the column count to 2, or having set the column width of a column to 0
...or missed something like this in the code
rst!Col1=...
rst!Col2=...

You might be able to just use the SQL for the recordset as the combo box's row source.
