I was wondering if there was a way to allow a combo box to expand out to the right if there are multiple choices available for a given row in a combo box. I would like it to work similar to the way Windows start menu works. For instance, Programs -> will show a larger list under the "programs" part of the start menu. Is this possible in access? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

Guamlet

As far as I know it isn't possible with a standard combobox.

However it is common practice to have >1 comboboxes where the values in each are dependent on what is selected in the others.
