I don't think there's any way you'll show check boxes as such in a combo box.
The nearest you could get would be to use the usual method for simulating
check boxes of a size/format different from the default in a form by setting
the FontName property of the combo box to Wingdings and in its RowSource use
a computed column to return the relevant character for a tick, e.g.
That will give you a tick for each True and a blank for each False, but you
won't get a box around them as you can to simulate a single check box in a
form or report by using a text box based on the computed column.
