If this is a data validation list, you could use code to compile a list 
of selected items. For example, if the data validation is in column C, 
the following code will store the selected items in the same row in 
column D:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rngDV As Range
Application.EnableEvents = False
If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub

On Error Resume Next
Set rngDV = Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeAllValidation)
On Error GoTo 0
If rngDV Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
If Intersect(Target, rngDV) Is Nothing Then
    'do nothing
    If Target.Column = 3 Then
      If Target.Value = "" Then Exit Sub
      If Target.Offset(0, 1).Value = "" Then
        Target.Offset(0, 1).Value = Target.Value
        Target.Offset(0, 1).Value = _
          Target.Offset(0, 1).Value _
          & Chr(10) & Target.Value
      End If
    End If
End If
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

If you're not using data validation, that is, something
like a combobox, you could use code like this to store
two selections (expand on this if you need to) in A1 & A2;

Dim home As Integer

Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
If home = 1 Then
    home = 2
    Range("A2").Value = ComboBox1.Value
    home = 1
    Range("A1").Value = ComboBox1.Value
End If
End Sub

Function to multiple ranges
Which function may be used with multiple ranges? Commonly used "lookups", "index" and "match" don't seem to work. Is there a trick in multiple ranges? Tomek Polak Some functions work, others don't.

Multiple Attributes

Apply Rule -- Workflow Process list has missing items
Hi, I was working at applying rules manually. I used to have 3 rules to choose from. Then I had 2, then 1, and now 2 again. The 3 rules exist and have been activated the entire time. The only thing I may have done is refresh (F5) the form while the rule was running. Now it is does not have the entire list of 3 rules to choose from on this item (Order). On all other orders, the list contains 3, but only 2 for this one. Anyone have ANY insight on this behaviour?? I have seen this behaviour once before.
