Default Access 2003 Look up field not displaying properly

I have a look up field in a form that is not displaying correctly. When I
open the form and click on the Business area field, my combo box opens
however there is no visible list to choose from; however if I pretend i see
something scroll down and click, then one of the choices does appear in my
field.

What am I not doing?????

If my first response doesn't help, is the rowsource of your combobox your
business area table, a query based on your business area table or a value
list containing a list of your business areas? If a table or query, post the
fields in order. If a value list, post the list. Then go to the form
containing the combobox and open it in design view. Select the combobox,
open properties and post the bound column property under the Data tab. Go to
the Format tab and post the Column Count and Column Width properties.

Steve~

Thank you for the suggestion. Just overlooked the count on the form itself.
Appreciate the help.
