Hello all,
After I select the appropriate items to show up in the drop down list of a Combo Box, I was not able to change the way (Font, size, alignment) this items appear.So please let me know if you have some suggestion on how to achieve such thing and Thanks.

If you used the combo box from the Forms toolbar, you have no control over the appearance. If you want more options, use the combo box from the Control Toolbox toolbar. After drawing a combo box from the Control Toolbox toolbar, right-click on it and choose "Properties" to see the VBA controls and options.

Thanks for the reply.I am using the Combo Box form the Forms toolbar so I understand that I can't make any change to it and I can't access its code.

A "Forms" Combo Box does not have code. You can assign a macro to it and you can set some properties under "Format Control" when you right click it. But as Fujirich says, a Forms toolbar object does not have the same options as a Control toolbar object does.
