Vba Listbox Lookup To Populate Another Listbox

I have 1 listbox (lisbox1) that retrieve it's list items from a worksheet range (imported/database query from access). This works fine.

I have a second listbox (listbox2) that should display results from clicking a value in listbox1.
Listbox1 contains companynames (1 column), listbox2 needs to be populated with quotes.

Range A3:D4800 contains company ID's, Company names, Quote Numbers. When I select a company name in listbox1, I need listbox2 to be populated with all quotes for that company.

I have tried (using vba) to do a vlookup using the listbox1 value, but I cannot seem to figure out how to populate listbox2 with "all" quotes. I get 1 quote and that's it. I realize I probably need to have the vlookup loop through each cell in the range to find the value, but when I try this, I get a type mismatch when using the .additem (only for the 2nd and subsequent passes).

Populate 2nd Listbox With 1st Listbox Selection
I have the following sheet which functions as a table to store values for files that have been created using the application which this table is in. In this app., I have a form with 2 listboxes. When the form loads, I have the first listbox list values which each of these files are listed under (i.e. - "sub-directories"). With a selection of one of the list values and clicking of a button, I want the second list box to list the values of cells listed in a range directly below where the selected value in the first listbox came from.

I'd prefer, in the first listbox, to have only the values of the ranges that have a value in them in the listbox. However, this would cause my listbox.selected(array) not function properly. But since my current offsets (in the second sub) do not seem to be working anyway, maybe I am going about this totally wrong.

but i get a runtime 381 error. could not set the list property. invalid property array index.

i'm using row 1 is index 0 and column 1 is index 0.

Populate User Form From ListBox Selection
Using the Roy Cox Database code , I am trying to populate a user form when the user selects a list row. I don't know if this is important, but I have extended my list beyond 10 columns. The list appears in UserForm2, and it should populate UserForm1. UserForm1 is also available to fill in from scratch; the info pulled from UserForm2 is from a search.

Here is my problem:

UserForm1 does not populate with the current selection, but rather the previous selection. It will appear blank upon the first selection. If I close UserForm2 after getting a blank on Form1 and call UserForm1 from its own macro, I will also see that previous selection.

Populate Listbox With Column Headers From Multiple Sheets
I am trying to go through each worksheet and if the worksheet name is Hematology then the header columns will be put into the listbox (ListBox1). The first row of the header is the parameter and the second is the units. Ideally I'd like column 1 to have the first headr row and column 2 to have the second header row. Once the listbox is completed, the user can select multiple columns by the header and those columns will be deleted. I have the ListStyle set to 1-fmListStyleOption and MultiSelect set to 1-fmMultiSelectMulti

The only thing I get when I run the rubroutine is a userform (Hematology), an empty listbox (ListBox1) and my two command buttons (Nothing to Delete and Remove Parameters).

Private Sub Hematology_initialize()
Dim Wrkst As Worksheet
Dim Header1 As Range
HeaderRange1 As String

For Each Wrkst In Worksheets
If Wrkst.Name = "Hematology" Then
For i = 1 To Wrkst.ColumnCount
Set Header1 = Wrkst.Cells(5, i)
HeaderRange1 = Header1.Address & ":" & Header1.Offset(1, LastColumn).Address
With Hematology.ListBox1
'Clear old ListBox RowSource
.RowSource = vbNullString
'Parse new one
.RowSource = HeaderRange

Next i

Populate Listbox & Text Boxes From Data In Sheet
I have a userform with a multi select listbox and 7 textboxes and a sheet with all the data on called "Metdata"

See "Metadata" sheet data below:

I want to:

1. Populate the Listbox1 with the data from column A, which starting at cell A3 and down until cell/row is blank. In the example "Metadata" sheet below I only two rows are present but that will increase to 200+ rows.

listbox1 = data from column A starting A3.

2. When the user selects a single item in the listbox1, I want the 6 textboxes to be populated with the data from the other columns related to the row selected as follows:

textbox1 = column B - starting cell B3
textbox2 = column C - starting cell B3
textbox3 = column D - starting cell B3
textbox4 = column E - starting cell B3
textbox5 = column F - starting cell B3
textbox6 = column G - starting cell B3

Every time the user changes the item selected in the listbox1, I want the textboxes to be populated with the data from the corresponding row selected.

3. When the user selects more that one item from the listbox I want all the textboxes to be locked = true and textbox7 = "Multiple files Selected"

Obviously when a single selection is made from listbox1 that all textboxes are unlocked for use....

More Userform Listbox
I have a listbox that is populated based on a named range from another workbook. Below is the code that populates it:

With InvDB

ListBox1.RowSource = .Name & "!rng"


End With

End Sub
My problem.

When I scrollbar down, no data appears.

This leads me to think that I need some kind of userform event to keep populating the listbox (similar to my code above) as I scroll up or down.

My questions:
1. Is it possible to specificy a rowsource in the properties window for the listbox that is pointing to an external workbook? If so, how do I write the rowsource?

I know that if the source workbook is open, I can use the rowsource:


But if source workbook is close, the below does not work:

C:Documents and SettingsPATSYSDesktopInvoiceDB.xls!rng

2. What is the userform event when you click the listbox scrollbar up or down?
