Hi,

I have created a combo box on a form and set the List Width, visible Column width and Width properties to 4".  However, on form view the control is still only about 1".  Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Thank you!

When you set the .Width property, you should see the control change size. Are you  sure that you are looking at the right control?

1. Make sure the column count jives with your column widths (i.e. 6 columns, 6 widths listed).

2. The list width and column widths are for the drop down list only.  Set the width property of the control to control the width of it in a non-dropped state.

If I haven't hit it, bounce back with a screen shot if you can.

Jim.

You combo box properties sound fine.

It is the Width property that controls how wide the textbox portion of the combo looks seen in form view.

Double check -

1.  That you have saved the changes to these properties

2,  That you have made those changes to the correct combo box.

The easiest way to do this is simply click on the outline of the combo box and drag the border until it is the width you want (in design view).
