My question is about freeform shapes in Excel 2007.

When I create a freeform shape with a mouse I can link it to a cell so that it displays whatever text is entered in that cell. I can do that by simply selecting the shape, and typing e.g. = A1 in the formula window.

However, I have not been able to do that in VBA code, i.e. programmatically.
Moreover, if I create a freeform shape programmatically in VBA, then I can not link it to a cell.

What properties of a shape need to be accessed to link it to a cell?

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.
