I type a symbol "&" in a drop-down form selection e.g. "A&B". But the "&" is
not displayed then and it become "AB".

In dropdown forms (and on menus) & is used to indicate the letter to be used
as an accelerator (if you type A&B, you should be seeing the B underlined).
For a workaround, see

Do you find that this works in a protected form in Word? I tried it, and it
just displayed "Aamp;B."
