    Populating a listbox based on column of first listbox

    Hi,

    I have two listboxes in the same userform. In listbox1 are the titles of every column in the spreadsheet. Each column contains many cells but they are just repeats of two different values, for example "test1" and "tes2". I want the second listbox to display a summary of the two options, that is "test1" and "test2", but I do not want replicates of them. I have attached a sample input. Thanks for your help in advanced!

    You posted a one sheet workbook with no user forms. The workbook looks like you spent about 15 - 20 seconds on it. So, I guess you want some one to develop a complete project for you.

    I posted that worksheet as a sample input, and you are correct, I did not spend very long on it. The overall project, is much, much larger (comprising around 20 forms) so it would not really be appropriate to post that. I do not by any means want somebody to do a complete project. I was looking for ideas in how to accomplish that task. I have attached what I had so far of the userform that I described above but it is not working. The first listbox was populated by a buttonclick in another form so there is nothing in it.

    The example couldn't include the userform?

    Try something like this...

    Exactly what I needed. Thank you for your help! I have learned my lesson and next time will post it with the userform.

    One last question: How would I make it so that the first listbox only showed column titles with 2 separate options in the column (Even if they were repeated)?

    I don't follow? Two separate options?

    So for example: column A contained cells 1: TitleA, 2: True, 3: True and 4: False. Column B contained cells 1: TitleB, 2: True, 3: False and 4: NA
    It would only show the TitleA in lisbox 1

    Perhaps I am using it incorrectly but for me that populates VariableInterest with all columns instead of just those with two options, EDIT: but you are correct that does what I was looking for before. Thanks for your help!
