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

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

Here's my problem. I have 2 worksheets.
The first worksheet contains 6 columns with 77 rows each of data that
will increase at some point. Column A on that worksheet is what the
rest of the data is referenced to.
The second worksheet is setup with 'name define' in cell *I4* to
scroll through the data in column A (A2-A77)of worksheet 1.
The question is: how do I populate the other 5 fields in worksheet 2
when I use the 'name define' to pick the data?.
Here's the breakdown of the cells I'm working with:

and via a second parameter the column from which to display the value is

Somewhere in column A of sheet 2 is the value of A1 (to be looked up).
Once this value is found, i want the cell next to it or two spaces next

The value in cell C1 contains the name of the sheet to lookup a value
in. Using Vlookup, this is a pretty straightforward question except

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.
