Default to save forms' properties

i have a problem while saving forms' properties.
when i want to save the rowsource property of a combobox control, it can not save the new value after closing form, it can only insert the new value to the table but not to the list(rowsource).
not only the rowsource but any other property of the form like "tag", "validationText" etc...
i have try this
me.combo0.rowsource = me.combo0.rowsource & ";" & NewData
but this does not work
thanks to tell me how to handle the NotInList.
looking to hearing from you.

In order to save changes to a form's design, or indeed to the design of any control on it, you must open the form in design view, make your changes, then save and close the form.

    DoCmd.OpenForm "Form1", acDesign
    Forms!Form1.Text0.Tag = "ABC"
    DoCmd.Close acForm, "Form1", acSaveYes
