i am trying to create a combobox containing a list of names
i want the list to default to a "dummy" value when the workbook is opened
How do i do this?
You would need a macro for that, assume that you use the combo box from the
and that the linked cell is A2 in Sheet2
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've tried me.width = ####

and I've tried dragging it larger.
Nothing works - the form goes back to what it want to be -
Any way to make a form stay the size its told ?

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 :
Private Sub cboIn_Click()
Dim intR As Integer
intR = Range("a4").CurrentRegion.Rows.Count
Range("a4").Offset(intR, 0).Value = cboIn.Value

There is no hard rule of thumb. If you are planning a small publication that a
staple will suffice, then you probably won't need extra gutter space.

I have a spreadsheet with formulas.
I show the formulas and resize (autofit) the columns.
I want to freeze the column widths on all the columns then...
.... uncheck show formulas.
Problem: when I uncheck show formulas the columns resize (smaller)
Many of the columns re-size to small for the data (pound signs display).
Can someone tell me what I need to do to keep the columns from resizing
after unchecking show formulas?

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.
