Is there any way to allow a combox to be multi-select?  Or am I stuck with a list box?  I have more data than I want in a list box, but user need to be able to select more than one item.

I don't follow what you mean about having more data than you want in the listbox. Can you explain a bit more?

Not the native Access combo box. Only the List Box.

You define what data goes in the listbox.  It can be one field or 10/20/30 fields, it's up to you.
