Combo box data

I need a combo box where the displayed info is the field headers and not the data values from the field.  For example, I have 2 fields "Full" and "Associate".  A full member pays 75.00 and an associate pays 25.00.  I want a drop down box to select 'Full'  or 'Associate' which is the field name.  When I create one it of course shows the value not the name.  I can do this by creating another table with the names as strings but I was wondering if there was another way to do this.


Thanks,
Ric

Set the combo box's RowSourceType property to "Value List", and set the Rowsource property (both under the Data tab in the property sheet)  to:

"Full"; "Associate"
