    Post ActiveX combobox datalist dependant on previous combobox selections

    Hi,

    I'm new to VBA so please bear with me. Basically I have 8 combobox's with the same datalist. What I would like to do is remove each item selected from the available items in the next combobox datalist (so that an item can only be selected once). So if the datalist was:

    Asbestos
    ATW
    BRK
    CAR
    PLM

    and the Combo1.Value = Asbestos then the datalist for Combo2 would be:

    ATW
    BRK
    CAR
    PLM

    and Combo2.value = BRK then the datalist for Combo3 would be:

    ATW
    CAR
    PLM

    and so on....

    There are 64 items in the list.

    Can anyone help?

    after update of the combo
    run macro to add all the items from the SRC to the TARGET combo, EXCEPT what was picked.

    Hi and thanks for your reply.

    I've had a go at this but with no success. I have combo1 listfillrange set but not on the other 7 combos. When I run this code for the first two combos (as a test) combo2 has no dropdown list. If I reference the listfillrange for combo2 I get 'runtime error 70' because you can't use additem when this is specified.

    Any ideas?
