You would need a macro for that, assume that you use the combo box from the

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("A2").Value = "Your_Dummy_Value"
Right click the little excel icon to the left of the filemenu and select

Alt + F11 and double click ThisWorkbook

I have a form that includes a combobox that has the following in its on enter
Private Sub cbProjectPhase_Enter()
The query that is tied to this combox uses another field ("Cost Center") on
this form as criteria to select records for this combobox.
It works fine except when I go to the next record and click on that combobox
it removes what is showing in the previous record's combobox's field because
my selection "Cost Center" is different this time.

I have a combo box on sheet1. When the user clicks on the combo box the
first time ( it gets focus ) It should add/load all items from sheet2 column
A. Now when the user selects from the combobox that item should be
copied/placed on sheet1.A5 similarly the next item selected in the combo box
should be placed below A6 and so on
How can this be accomplished with code
Use code like that :

I'm using Excel 2003
I have a spreadsheet using a ComboBox that allows selection of one of
several sets of data. Each set is a 3 column row of data. I have the
following properties set:
When a selection is made the ComboBox displays the column 1 value.
The ComboBox seems to behave normally, except that when I close and open the
file the combox initially displays the value of column 2 (instead of column
1). When a new selection is made it goes back to displaying the column 1

Not sure exactly what you're asking, but if it's what I think you can hook
into the change notification on the combo box then send a message to your
view to set the "grid" or whatever control you want to match the new
selection in the combo box. I don't think you would associate them
directly, but you could certainly cause a change in the combo box selection
to change data in any other view or dialog in your program.

You could do an advanced filter on the data to another range, and link to

I have a ComboBox used on my spreadsheet that lets the end user select dates
from a drop down menu. All the dates are out of site to the end user and

decimal (ie. 38445).
Does anyone know why this is happening or how to make it display in date
