I am trying to use the list box function from the control
toolbar. I am not sure how to get the listings I want in
the list box. Is there certain VB coding that is needed?
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
No VBA code needed. In Design mode, click on your list box and select
Properties from the Control toolbox (or right-click your list box and select
Properties), then scroll down to the ListFillRange Property and indicate the
cell range address that has the items you want to appear in the box (i.e.,
A1:A10). Then exit out of design mode and test your list box.

Someone sent me an Excel document where each of the cells in I1:I312 are
combo boxes. When you click off of those cells, the down arrow

you please tell me if it is possible to make New and Existing autocorrect
entries. So even though the choices are New and Existing, if you hit N,
New appears, and if you hit E, Existing appears. Thanks!!
