Excel Facts

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

How have you populated the combobox?

If you've used the RowSource property then you can probably use ListIndex to get the number.
Code:
Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
    TextBox1.Value = Range("B" & ComboBox1.ListIndex + 1)
End Sub

How can I have it so the combo box size. Is only as big as the number of people.

Say in a1

there were 2 names, Id want the combobox to only be 2 options big if you get me.

*edit* I think it the rowsource. So the row source will only ake the cells that have a value?

Also I ahve this code:

Code:
Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
TextBox4.Text = Worksheets("Friends").Range("B" & ComboBox1.ListIndex + 2)


End Sub



Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

person = TextBox4.Text

Message = TextBox2.Text

send = "net send " & person & " " & Message & ""

Shell (send)

End Sub
