creating a combo box with a pull-down menu - Microsoft Access

    Default creating a combo box with a pull-down menu

    I have a fixed list which is way too big for a List Box
    and I don't like scrolling (eliminating a simple Combo
    Box), so my solution is to create a Combo Box with a pull-
    down menu. Only, I can't find how to in the program Help
    section.

    Secondarily, I want to take the values that I put in the
    combo box and convert the to numeric values (like what an
    Option Box allow you to do). I am working off an already
    existing form and would rather not have to re-create the
    whole thing, but I will if I have too.

    I'm running Access '97, 2000 or XP (I have access to all
    three).

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    I have no idea what this means. A ComboBox has an arrow and when you click on it the
    list drops down so you can make a selection. Where does a pull-down menu come into
    play?

    What I mean when I say pull-down is actually drop-down
    box. I don't want to have to scroll down thru the options
    but rather have them all appear (like what a pull-down or
    drop-down menu does in Windows. Is there any way to make
    the list dimensions larger so that all items are shown
    simultaneously??
