This is my first time using a combo box. This combo box is simply meant to quickly take the user to a particular place in a >4000 row spreadsheet; e.g., click on "Car" in the drop down, then go to cell A407, but nothing is happening. Eventually I would like to search & match to a text string in column A, because the sheet will change and the location won't always be A407, so if that is possible I'd love to know how to do that, too. Thanks ever so much!

Private Sub cboUNITS_Click()
If cboUNITS = "Car" Then
Sheets("Unit Drives and Economics").Select
Range("A407").Select


End If
End Sub

Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying

This is a guess but worth trying:

Code:
[SIZE=1]Private Sub cboUNITS_Click()[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1]
If cboUNITS = "Car" Then
    Sheets("Unit Drives and Economics").Select
    Sheets("Unit Drives and Economics").Range("A407").Select
End If

End Sub[/SIZE]

It may be that you just need to fully qualify the range you want to select.

What type of combobox is it and where is it located?

To goto a specific cell you can use this.
Code:
Application.Goto Sheets("Unit Drives and Economics").Range("A407"), True
How to get that to run depends on the answer to the first question.:)

Comoboboxes either return the value selected or the index (place in list) of the value selected.

eg comboboxes on a worksheet created with the Forms toolbar return the index, not the value.
