    Textbox to populate based on combobox selection

    Hello! I need some assistance!

    Need: Combobox selection causes textbox below it to autofill. For example, using my sample, if someone makes the choice of C6 in the combobox, D6 will autopopulate into the textbox.

    Issues: I have two lists in Cells C5:D7. There is lots of other stuff all around these lists so I can't use the entire column range in any formulas/VBA. In the real workbook the list is a dynamic data extraction so the length of the lists changes all the time (longer and shorter). If you look at the code for the combobox rowsource (which I'm sure I 'borrowed' from this site somewhere, you'll see how the list changes length. Maybe that's irrelevant if row # could be used. So that's what I was thinking....to pull by row #.....but I have gotten myself so confused that now I can't think straight. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated! THANKS!

    Sample workbook: Test.xlsm

    1) Never activate a sheet and select a cell to read its contents, that's what humans do, and the macro recorder records human actions, so you need to get in the habit of removing all those extra steps.

    I've rewritten your cbLista initialize code to use ALL the values in column C starting at C6 going down as far as there are values. The sheet is never "activated". In fact this source sheet can be hidden if you wish.

    2) The code suggestion:

    This gave me "Run-time error '1004': No cells were found" even though there is a list. Further suggestions? Thanks

    Re: Textbox to populate based on combobox selection

    Any chance your values in column C are not constants? Notice the updated code is looking for constants, not formulas. If you post your workbook WITH the edits and data that is causing the errors, I can most likely spot the problem.

    Re: Textbox to populate based on combobox selection

    You are correct...both columns C & D in the real workbook are dynamic data extraction. There is an array formula in both columns and the values are constantly changing.

    Re: Textbox to populate based on combobox selection

    Do you think the vlookup is also not working because it's actually formulas in those cells?

    Re: Textbox to populate based on combobox selection

    Thank you...I'll try it. But in the meantime, I already had working code for that....the other poster just was choosing to make it better code. The code I really need to get working is this part:

    Re: Textbox to populate based on combobox selection

    VLOOKUP is about as basic a function as it gets. Can you post a workbook with that failing so I can review what is happening directly?

    Re: Textbox to populate based on combobox selection

    I really think this has something to do with columns G & H having array formulas in them. Here are the fomulas: =IF(ROWS(G$64:G64)<=$B$62,INDEX(INDIRECT(G$63),SMALL(IF(Shift_Date=$B$1,IF(LEFT(Employee_Job_Title,2)=$C$2,IF(Shift_Type="Regular",IF(Unit_Location_Worked="01905000 / Central Staffing Core -VMC",IF(Assigned="Not Assigned",ROW(Shift_Date)-ROW(AvailableStaff!$A$2)+1))))),ROWS(G$64:G64))),"")

    Maybe we need to avoid the vlookup option altogether. Any other ideas?

    Re: Textbox to populate based on combobox selection

    Can't you use the ListIndex of the combobox to get the row the selection is from?
