Quick question about Access 1020 Combo Box display

Here is an illustration of what I am talking about.This question doesn't involve any code (yet).

I have a combo box in my Access 2010 database form. It has two columns in it. When I click on the arrow to see the drop-down list, I can see both of the columns. However, once I choose the item from the list that I want, the box only displays the first item in the column.

How to I make it so that both items show when I am not looking at the whole list?
