    Add combobox to a Word doc and populate the combobox with list of about 65 items

    Hello, I'm having trouble with a combobox on a Word doc and populating with our company's school addresses (64 schools)
    I'm new Word VBA (I'm an Excel guy). I would appreciate any help. It has to be done in Word.

    What kind of combobox? A Useform Combobox or a Content Control combobox?

    Populating these in Word is really no different to populating them in Excel. What code are you using? What specific problem are you having?

    I have a list of about 65 schools, address, Phone. I just want the combobox to work just like a validation drop down in excel where I select list and =mylist.

    Is there a way to input the all the school addresses from a excel range or a word table?

    Here's how to do it from a list in a Word table:

    You could do it from an Excel workbook but, apart from the necessary coding differences, that workbook would also have to be available to the students.

    Hello maropod, I sorry my boss is driving me cazy on this one. We already have a perfect Adobe form, but they want it in Word and we upload it to Sharepoint. So the data has to be in the Word doc I'm thinking. Right.
