Hiding a column via a combo box

hello: Please forgive my ignorance as i am very new to writing macros. I am wondering if someone could give me some help writing a macros that will hide a column (on a different worksheet) when I make a selection from a combo box? The combo box only has two possible selections. When the first option is selected the column would not be hidden...when the second option is selected the macro would fire and hide the column.

Thanks very much.

Try this

Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
    If ComboBox1.ListIndex = 1 Then Sheets("Sheet2").Columns("J:J").Hidden = True
    If ComboBox1.ListIndex = 0 Then Sheets("Sheet2").Columns("J:J").Hidden = False
End Sub
