QUESTION: I'm using VBA in Excel 2007. I have a form that has a combo box which is populated with a few items. Whwn the form is displayed, I want the combo box to come up with one of the items out of the list selected in it (as if user has made a selection from the drop down list). How can I do that? ANSWER: Sanjay
The following line on code in the initialize procedure for the userform that contains combobox1 should put a value in the combobox.
ComboBox1.Value = "b"

If combobox1 is on userform1, when it initializes it will be set to the third item in the list with the following code:
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
ComboBox1.ListIndex = 2
The first item in the combobox is listindex 0.
