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.

I'm assuming that I'll need to recode the different versions of an
