I see your up to almost 200 posts, so I am going to guess that you know how to make a proper combobox which is bound to 1 column but displaying another.

Change it to a textbox and type this into the Format property of the field:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. "Balanced";;"Not Balanced";
The format property for a numeric textbox can display differently depending on whether its Positive;Negative;Zero;Null, and you write each format property in the above order seperated by ;.

Hope that helps.
