    items in combobox2 depending on combobox1

    I'm looking for the correct If Then solution that can add items to combobox2 depending on the choice that's made with combobox1
    So combobox1 has three choices (X, Y, Z). When a user selects X, the 2nd combobox should display A, B and C.
    When a user selects Z in the first combobox, the 2nd should display G, H and I
    Hopefully I explained good enough what I'm looking for and can I expand a working situation myself with other options

    I'm still figuring out all the options that should be available but if I have a start I can modify all the options later myself

    Hi, minifreak,

    the normal to attach to the button is simply the call the userform:

    Behind the userform place the following code

    Please alter the names to suit. Within the Select Case you can add other or more items if wanted.
