hi
i have a interesting problem and i hope you guys can help me out. i have created an excel worksheet (callled invoice) that has a combo box on it. this combo box needs to be populated from a single row in another excel worksheet (named addresses). in addition to that the combo box must be able to add typed data into the addresses worksheet.

once the the name is selected from the combo box, other fields in the invoice worksheet must filled in with data from the addresses worksheet (different data in addresses will be organized in columns in the following order: name, address, phone #). in addition i don't know how to search within the addresses worksheet from the invoice worksheet, and how to assign a variable to the proper row and colum in the addresses work sheet.

thanks for your help

How did you create the combobox?

Did you use Data>Validation or is it from the Forms or Control Toolbox toolbars?

Is it on a worksheet or userform?

To fill in the data you could use VLOOKUP worksheet functions.

Can you post an example of your data, perhaps using Colo's HTML Maker?
