    Word 2003 - ComboBox within UserForm, different custom colours for each value

    Hi, i'm new to the forums.

    I'm in no way an expert in VBA, I've searched the internet with no luck with a change I'm trying to do to a Word 2003 document template.

    I'm using a Userform to populate a document template. I need help with one specific ComboBox, where I want to assign each of the values with a different custom colour, using RGB? These are not standard colours.

    Once selected and I click to 'Update Document', the selection needs to populate the specific text with its colour within the Header and Footer only of the document.

    I work alongside developers who haven't an answer for this. Unfortunately I'm unable to attach the code. I'm getting to the stage of writing the colour codes into my 'Code of Practice' document and the users having to complete this task manually which isn't best practice.

    I'd appreciate any help.

    You can associate the colours with the combobox values in various ways. The attached shows one way.

    Morning Paul, thanks for replying.

    Unfortunately the document is blank when I open it.

    Well, yes, but that's because all it has is a userform with a combobox and some demo code.

    Question Re: Word 2003 - ComboBox within UserForm, different custom colours for each value

    Hi,

    Doesn't seem like there is any coding or combo box in the file. I can't see anything, unless there is a hidden function?

    Please clarify. Thank you.

    As I said in post#4, the document has a userform with a combobox and some demo code. You can access them via Alt-F11.
