Sorry to re-post this, but can anyone help with setting up a list box on a form so that vertical scrolling still works, but the user is not able to select (i.e. highlight) any row in the listbox.

Thanks.
 

Excel Facts

Select all contiguous cells
Pressing Ctrl+* (asterisk) will select the "current region" - all contiguous cells in all directions.

Hi Linus, is there any reason you don't want the selection highlighted ?
You can do this although there still remains an outlined selection BUT no default colour selection....

Hi Ivan,

I want to do this because there are other list boxes in the spreadsheet where selecting and highlighting a row causes something to happen, & this list box is providing reference information only (so highlighting it will be confusing).

Is there a way to have the outline selection only, with no color change ? That would be a good solution in this case.

Thanks.
