    Delete a Item from a Listbox.

    Hi All,

    I have the below code which deletes all items from a listbox and my excel sheet which is the source for populating that listbox. I am using a option button style for my listbox and the selection style as single .i.e. you can select only one item at one go in the lisbox. I want my macro to delete the selected item from my worksheet .i.e. it's entire row so that it doesn't reflect in my lisbox any more. Below is my code :

    ListIndex starts at zero, so to get the Row number you need to add 1 plus 1 for the Header Row assuming this is in A1.

    I believe Removeitem only works if the lines have been added using AddItem

    Experiment with

    Until you are satisfied.

    The simplest way to populate a listbox is using 'rowsource' if your data are in a sheet.
    Otherwise you should use the property 'List'.
    Only in the case you add 1 item at a time additem is worth considering.

    When using 'rowsource' deleting an item in the 'source' automatically adjusts the listbox. In that case you do 2 thing in 1 move.
    When using .list you have to adjust the 'source' and afterwards the property .List because both are unconnected.

    Hi snb,

    Thanks a lot for your reply, I have tried to incorporate the code which you have provided in your earlier post in my userform and it deletes the selected item from the excel sheet .i.e. URL List but it doesn't get immediately deleted from the Listbox .i.e. I need to reload the userform in order to see my change .i.e. the listbox doesn't get updated immediately.


    Thanks a lot for your help in advance

    Hi Roy

    Thanks a lot for your reply, I tried to incorporate the code which "snb" had provided in his earlier post in my userform and it deletes the selected item from the excel sheet .i.e. URL List but it doesn't get immediately deleted from the Listbox .i.e. I need to reload the userform in order to see my change .i.e. the listbox doesn't get updated immediately.

    One more thing which is creating a problem is suppose I have only row data then my lisbox box gets populated with blank items .i.e. one item and 65534 blank items. Attached is the screenshot for your reference.

    Following is the modified code which I have come up with the code provided by you but even this code is creating the blank row issue. :

    See the attached attachment
    NB. if you want to avoid empty items in the listbox remove the hyphen in the doubleclick event.

    Hi Roy,

    Thanks a lot for you reply, You are right that the code which you have provided is working but it still has an issue which I have highlighted in the screenshot which I had attached in my earlier post. The issue is that suppose I have only one row data in my excel sheet then my lisbox box gets populated with one item and 65534 blank items, and I think the issue is because of the below line which i have highlighted in red.
