    Cursor not able to select combo box drop down arrow

    I created a document that has been working fine for months. It works for me but I sent it to my colleague and he is not able to click on the arrow in the drop down box.

    he gets the + sign on his cursor when he hovers over the combo box and it will not allow him to select or click on anything.

    Is there a way to fix this? is it a glitch? Excel 2010

    Any help would be appreciated

    Re: Cursor not able to select combo box drop down arrow

    I have seen this around the office and have read that it involves the recent updates to Microsoft Office 2010. Here is how I've fixed the issue on my colleagues' computers.

    Browse to:

    C:\Users\blahblah\AppData\Local\Temp\Excel8.0

    And move the MSForms.exd file to another folder. I backup everything, personally. Excel will recreate the file on next launch, but without the faulty forms issues.

    Not sure about long term fix.
