    Assigning dynamic named ranges to listfillrange via macro code

    Ok, I believe what I'm trying to do is not complicated and that I'm simply missing some sintax but I will have to explain in full what I'm trying to do.

    So I've created two comboboxes in Sheet1. What I would like to do is make the listfillrange in the second combobox depend on the selection in the first combobox.

    Example.

    Combobox1:
    Numbers
    Letters

    If i select "Numbers", the listfillrange in the second combobox will display numbers 1-10

    If i select "Letters", the second combobox will display letters a-z

    In order to do this, the code for the first combobox assignes the listfillrange of the second combobox using named ranges which i've created but this is where i get an error.

    If cells(1,1) = "Numbers" then (cell A1 is linked to the combobox and displays the same value)
    ActiveSheet.Shapes("ComboBox").Select
    With Selection
    .ListFillRange = "I would like to insert the named range here"
    End Select

    What the proper syntax here, I've been through forums for hours. (Note: I need to be able to call the named range even if its not on the same sheet as the combobox)

    Please Help
    Thanks

    Hello Schwizer,

    Add a Standard VBA Module to your project and then copy and paste the code into it. You will need to change the names of the Drop Downs to match the names on your work sheet. Assign the Macro to the First DropDown only. The one the user selects Letters or Numbers. THe names of the Named Ranges are Numbers and Letters. You can change these to match the names you are using, if they are different.
