Dismiss ComboBox Dropdown While ComboBox Code Is Still Running
Dec 8, 2009
When I make a comboBox selection from the dropdown menu, the menu stays down until the last statement of the comboBox code is finished. How do I make the dropdown disappear immediately after the selection is made?
I have set up a combolist box, and wish to run different VBA subroutines depending on what the user has selected from the combolist. How do I do this? Apologies in advance if this sounds like a silly question.
I am trying to develop an easier way for our corporate card holders to 'code' their monthly statements. Instead of each card holder receiving a statement and filling out a coding form in excel and printing it out, I would like to email them an excel doc of their specific charges for the month and allow them to use drop down lists to code the transactions. They can then email it back to me, and then we're done! Well, there would be a few more steps but basically, I'm trying to build a dynamic excel doc that would do two things:
1) Conditional drop down boxes so that, depending on their cost center, once they choose their cost center from the first drop down, it would zero them in on only their own account codes in the second box. The second account box would also be a combo box and show the account name once selected.
2) The second I'm not sure about.....is it possible once the conditional drop down box works, to make copies of the 'All Detail' sheet to then narrow down the info to only one card holder? So if the 'All Detail' sheet had all the charges for all the card holders for the month and the conditional drop down worked, could I then make copies of the 'All Detail' sheet, rename it to the one card holder, delete all the transactions except for those relevant to that card holder, and the conditional drop down box would still work? I ask this question because I build an early version (that didn't really work) based on a macro that had code specific to the sheet name. It wouldn't work once I tried to make copies of the sheet and rename it.
I have a userform with a combobox in it that's rowsource is a column of company names in a worksheet. When a company name is chosen, a combobox change private sub runs and many userform textboxes are populated with information about the company that was chosen from the combobox dropdown. This information is stored on a worksheet. I then want to edit any of the information in these textboxes. Once my edits are made I have a CommandButton that is pressed to save the edit changes. This CommandButton runs a private sub that disables the combobox (thinking this would prevent the combobox private sub from running), deletes the row that the information originated from, and then SHOULD make a new row of values based on the contents of the textboxes following the edits. The problem is that the CommandButton coding that deletes the row causes the combobox change private sub to run because the company that had been selected is now the missing from the rowsource; this causes an error.
I have a userform where I want the user to be able to select multiple options, but am having a bit of a problem finding the best way to do this. If I use a combobox, I don't appear to be able to allow multiple selections, but if I use a listbox I don't appear to be able to implement a dropdown facility. I would prefer to have a single line sized box on my form, but doing this with a listbox would probably be confusing for the user as it is not very easy to see what has been selected.

The data is of varying lengths, and the lists are actually parts lists, so they are long and of varying lengths each. Aside from physically going in a manually padding spaces, which isn't feasible given the number of them. The have alphanumeric characters, so jumbled all together seperated by commas is very messy and hard to read. I have tried padding with spaces using a formula but they do not line up right. I have been searching for a solution either having the entries in separate cells and concatenated entries, and still no luck.
I have searched and have not been able to find an answer to this question so it might be a little unique possibly. I have an ActiveX combo box that I am trying to do something with. The text that I want to appear in the combo box is already there and I did this by creating a list and referencing it to the combo box. So the combo box has the following four items in its drop down:
Boat Car Plane Walk
Now the part I cannot figure out is how to make a selected value appear in another cell based on what was selected in the combo box. For example, if boat is selected in the combo box, then I want the value 25 to appear in a cell. If Plane is selected in the combo box, I want the value of 100 to appear in a cell. For walk 5, and for car 22. I know this can easily be done with data validation and a validation drop down list but I do not want to use that but need to have a combo box do it instead. I just don't know if it cannot be done as a list or not and have experimented with INDEX but not having any luck there. I do not want to use any macros for this either. Basically I am wondering how I can make my combo box work just like data validation drop down menu bar with formatted values outputted into a cell.
I've done some looking around in the object browser and in the forum, but i wasn't able to find the answer to this question:
I've got a combobox (dropdown list) in a userform which i use to run macros. soft of them are fairly long (2-3seconds), and during that time the dropdown list remains visible.... is there a way to force hide it?
I am not sure if this can be done easily but essentially what I have is a userform that fills out a form that will used by several different people and saved to a central location.
There is a blank combobox currently labeled "Supplier:" that each person fills out each time on the userform (there are no dropdowns yet).
What I am wanting to do is for every person who saves (I have coded the save button) with the "Supplier:" combobox filled out to save what they entered and input that into the combobox dropdown so when the next person uses the userform the entry the previous person entered would be in the combobox as an option to select.
Essentially, a combobox populates itself based on what previous users have entered into it.
I created a UserForm then linked ComboBox1 to range A2:A, TextBox2 to range E2:E, and ComboBox3 to range M2:M of the same worksheet, named Sheet3. The row contents in Column A, Column E, and Column M are associated. Therefore, when the UserForm is active I want to be able to select a row from Column A in ComboBox1 and have the UserForm pull the contents from the same row of Column E into TextBox2, and Column M into ComboBox3. Here is what I have so far, but its not quite doing it.
Code: Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() Sheets("Sheet3").Activate Dim ColARange As Range
I have a worksheet called "Lookup" with several dynamic named ranges (each is 1 column wide) including facility, department, shift, etc. On a summary worksheet in the same workbook I want users to use a dropdown or combo box (don't care what type) in cell B2 to select a facility and then based on their selection, copy the department named range data and paste it into the summary sheet beginning in cell A5 and paste the shift named range data into the summary sheet beginning in cell B5.
Example: user selects "AR Plant" from the dropdown or combo box and the data from the "AR_Rpt" named range is pasted into cell A5 and the "AR_Shift" named range is pasted into cell B5.
I have a list of employees that can be assigned to tasks, the list is large enough that I cannot remember who is assigned to what.
All the employees assigned major tasks are automatically filtered out but these are employees with administrative tasks that should only be assigned as a last resort. I would like to assign the employees with administrative tasks a gray, italic, strike-out or some other font to indicate that they are different.
I assume this is done during the Add Item process...
I have a userform with a combobox that has three items to choose from: Blue, Red, and Yellow. When a user selects one of those options, I would like another combobox to appear on my userform with a specific list for that option.
I'm trying to make a userform that has 2 combo boxes. I have just 3 columns right now.

I copied and pasted Column A into Column C and then removed duplicates. I named Column C 'ValList' and placed it in the RowSource for ComboBox1. What I now want is for ComboBox2 to populate based on my selection in ComboBox1. There are no duplicates in Column B. Duplicates are in Column A.
I also named Column A 'Proc_Grp' and Column B 'ADA_QSI_Desc'
For the properties in Combobox2, I left the RowSource empty. (that's correct right?) Because there's going to be a code that links Combobox2 to Combobox1... I think...
Iíve found an excel sheet (witch a sample I post) from a Hobby I have, and after looking how it workís it occur to me, that a similar file would solve I big problem in the restaurant I work. Iíve been thinking about it and Iíve now all the layout of my new-to-be file in my head, and I was going to start working on it, when I found that I couldnít do one of the basic think on this file. Witch is to make the combobox were you can change the text according to a number or pre-determinate options. I know that you can use VBA to add comboboxís to you excel sheet, but this doesnít seem to be the case. You can see the example in the cell B4 in the file that I post here.
