CustomerID combo box in Form view
You need to widen the CustomerID combo box, so that the widest customer value
in the list is displayed in the combo box. You can widen the combo box in Layout

view instead of Design view to make this change because you can determine the
proper width more accurately in Layout view.

edge, widen the combo box until the entire customer value is visible. See
