    Search for sheet for value matching combobox value and place in designated cell

    Ok, here's what I am trying to do.

    I have a combo box EDIT*(In a UserForm)*EDIT that details numerous item names. I'm trying to return a value associated to the item in a textbox *in the same* user form.

    I figure this can be accomplished like this:

    search sheet for ComboBox1 value
    return its location
    offset (x,y)
    return cell value to this static cell

    Then I can tell the textbox to equal the static cell.

    Perhaps I'm on the right track? Trouble is I'm not familiar with the codes to perform the aforementioned commands.
    Now I'm wondering if it's even possible..


    Maybe someone out there knows better? Happy to hear any thoughts !

    Attach a sample workbook (not a picture or pasted copy). Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and then scroll down to Manage Attachments to open the upload window.

    Awesome, thanks for the quick reply.

    I have a workbook here that highlights the challenge I am trying to succeed. I've added comments to the target cells found in the "Engine" page describing the goal.

    Thanks for bearing with me.

    Please let me know if there is anything I can do to further clarify my intentions.

    Also, if you notice anything I could have done different to save time or be more efficient, I'd be glad to hear.

    Thanks again,
