    When typing info into a data field with a drop-down list on a form, is there
    a way VIA SOME KEYSTROKE(S) to make the drop-down list appear? The only way
    I know to have the list appear is to use a mouse, but it would be much
    easier for the data entry person if hands could be kept on the keyboard. Is
    there a way?

    Why not just have the combo drop-down as soon as the user tabs into
    it.
    Code the Combo Enter event:
    Me![ComboName].Dropdown
