    Combobox - can't get click event to run for first item in the list

    I created a combo box from the control toolbox toolbar. It works fine and
    the user can type in a few letters to narrow the list which displays in the
    combobox. Once the list has been shortened they will click on the item they
    want. Very handy.

    But if the item is first in the list of available items, the click doesn't
    do anything and the Click Event doesn't trigger. So my Macro -- Private Sub
    ComboBox1_Click() -- doesn't run. If the clicked item is 2nd (or further
    down) on the list the Click Event triggers fine and everything works.

    Any ideas how to get the click event to work for the first item in the list?

    Thanks!

    Dale,
    Show you code for the _Click event.
    Are you making any check like
    If cbo1.ListIndex>0 Then...

    Here's the code I have for the experimental combobox:
    Private Sub ComboBox1_Click()
    MsgBox "click"
    End Sub

    Not too exciting.
    I'm not doing any checking. It sounds like maybe I should?...

    Thanks!

    Dale,
    I see no reason why the Click event does not work for the first item in the
    list, but works for all others.
