I'm using a vba snippet that I found in the archives which does almost everything I want. The filter criteria comes from an input box, however I want to get this from a combo box. I can't make it work!

The code used is

Sub Extract_Data()
'Macro written by Barrie Davidson

'Variables used by the macro
Dim FilterCriteria
Dim CurrentFileName As String
Dim NewFileName As String

'Get the current file's name
CurrentFileName = ActiveWorkbook.Name
'Select the first 10 columns and first 100 rows
Range("A1:J100").Select
'Apply Autofilter
Selection.AutoFilter
'Get the filter's criteria from the user
FilterCriteria = InputBox("Enter condition to be met")
'Filter the data based on the user's input
'NOTE - this filter is on column A (field:=1), to change
'to a different column you need to change the field number
Selection.AutoFilter field:=1, Criteria1:=FilterCriteria
'Select the visible cells (the filtered data)
Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Select
'Copy the cells
Selection.Copy
'Open a new file
Workbooks.Add Template:="Workbook"
'Get this file's name
NewFileName = ActiveWorkbook.Name
'Make sure you are in cell A1
Range("A1").Select
'Paste the copied cells
ActiveSheet.Paste
'Clear the clipboard contents
Application.CutCopyMode = False
'Go back to the original file
Workbooks(CurrentFileName).Activate
'Clear the autofilter
Selection.AutoFilter field:=1
'Take the Autofilter off
Selection.AutoFilter
'Go to A1
Range("A1").Select

End Sub
