    ComboBox Search and focus on cell

    On the attached example, I have a list of football fixtures listed in the range AW4:AW169 and this list is populated in ComboBox1.

    What I want to do is add some code so that when a user selects a fixture from the ComboBox (either by choosing with their mouse or searching by typing) then that corresponding row is selected on the worksheet in column B.

    So, for example, if I was to select Celtic v Rangers (which is in row 166) then once selected focus on the worksheet should move to cell B166.

    Ideally, I don' want to the active cell moving around as I am typing in the combobox if possible. I just think this would be a little irritating. I only want to focus on the value of the ComboBox once selected.

    Cheers,
    Adam.

    @ HSV,

    Hello Harry,

    Yes I agree. I completely forgot about using the ListIndex.

    My complete code now looks like this:

    Looks much nicer, and if an entry in the Combobox is deleted, then the sheet scrolls back to the top.

    Thank you for your input.
