Access - Hide identity values in a form


I want to find a way to hide Access Identity values in a form without the use of subdata sheets.
In the form shown below there is a column called Status ID that holds a integer value that
relates to another column called Status. These two columns are in the "Order Details Status"

I would like the user to rather see one column with the words (eg "Allocated", "On Order" etc)
and make there selection in any row of that column. Is there a way to achieve this without the use of subdata sheets?
For example can you use a query as the source of the form?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Look at field's properties and set 0 width to the first column (0, 5 if you have 2 columns)
Change 5 to any acceptable value for the width of second column
