    Just want to add that the reason that solution worked is that you do not have the RowSource property of the combobox set. You are instead loading the elements in the code in UserForm_Initialize. If you had been using RowSource then your code would have worked.

    Actually, there was another tiny fix needed.

    The combobox wasn't called ComboBox1, it was cboStudyID.
