Combo Box only shows One Field

Combo Box only shows One Field

I have a combo box on a form with 3 columns in it when it lists the options - however when an option is actually selected - the form only displays column one. Is there any way to change this

Any help gratefully received

RE: Combo Box only shows One Field


thanks that is a pretty decent workaround.
If I want to make sure that each cloumn begins at the same point - so I get:

Auber       Dan
Smith       John

and not


I would use RPAD in Oracle - any idea what Access's equivalent is ??

Unfortunatwely, I don't know that one off the top of my head except by using fixed length fields..

I.e. pad each value out with spaces but that would only work in monospaced fonts.
