Hi,

Is it possible to format how the text appears in a combo box? I used the combo box from 'forms'.

Thanks,
Jon

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December

depends on how you want the text to appear.

Try .font and .foregroundcolor

you can also format the combobox itself.

If you are using the combobox from the Forms toolbar you can't really do any formatting.

The Font and ForeColor that Harvey seems to be referring to are only available with comboboxes from the Control Toolbox or on a userform.
