    clicking activeX combobox disables worksheet

    I am using Excel 2016. In one of the worksheets, I have an ActiveX combobox that contains some city names. The city names are populated when the workbook is loaded. Everything is fine up to this point. But after I click on the combobox to change the city, I cannot change the value of any cell in the worksheet. it is like the worksheet is frozen. If I go to any other worksheet then go back to the concerned worksheet, everything works fine.

    Then, I added empty Combobox in every sheet. The same thing happened once I click on the comboxbox. And again, the problem disappear when I leave the sheet to another one and go back.

    I do not know what I did wrong. Note that I tried this on a clean workbook, the problem did not occur.

    This is not default behavior.
    The city names are populated when the workbook is loaded.
    How are you doing this? Do you have macros in this file? If so please attach the file (see yellow banner at the top of the page) or at a minimum paste the code from the worksheet module into a post (use code tags when posting code).

    How are you using the value in the combobox once an item is selected? Is the combobox linked to a cell, or are you using macros to act on the value?

    Thank you very much. The bug is in the worksheet "initialize" sub.
