working with multi-value combo box

In  the attached database, I'm using multi-value combo boxes to track employees (see tbl_Accounts).  I'd like the multiple names to appear with last name, first name and separated by a colon (Smith, Joe; Barry, Sam; Sweeny, Sue).  But instead it just shows last name.

And in my frm_SearchMulti form employees are showing with their ID number instead of name, and I'm getting duplicate rows.

How can I control what appears for these multi-value fields?
