    What exactly is going wrong?

    Errors? The wrong row being deleted?

    Also, are you initially populating the listbox using the ListFillRange property?

    If you are have you tried using List instead?
    If posting code please use code tags, see here.

    I am getting the error code "application defined or object defined error".

    Everything else in the code works except for the row doesn't delete.

    The listbox is populated by rowsourse. I just want to be able to click on a row in the list box and have the command button delete that row on the worksheet

    If you use RowSource/ListFillRange when populating a listbox/combobox you will have problems deleting from the range you are using as the source.

    Instead of using RowSource/ListFillRange you can use List and you should have no problems deleting.

    Not sure what the source range is but this is how you would use List and this code would go in the form's Initialize event.

    PS You might want to add a sheet reference to the above to make sure the listbox is populated from the correct worksheet.

    Thanks, will give it a go. Can you give n example of the code needed to delete row row data on the sheet that is selected in the listbox as the code I currently have doesn't state 'selected' which leads me to believe I may have the wrong code

    Not sure what you mean by 'selected', are you working with a multiselect listbox?

    Also not too sure what range/sheet you are populating the listbox from so can't really post specific code for deleting a row.

    By selected I mean when clicked on. When you click on the row in the postbox it is highlighted. The list is is populated by sheet "mattbrowndata" cells U1003:AD2002

    Thanks man
