I have combo box that has 16 names to choose from and puts them in a1
I want to make a formula that says if a1=town, then 2, if a1=city then 2 and so forth..16 times. How can I do this?

You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

It isn't quite clear if you want to create the formula on the Excel spreadsheet or in VBA.

If on the Excel sheet, create a lookup table for all of your values and use the VLOOKUP function (check out Excel's help on VLOOKUP for details and examples).

If in VBA, you can use a Select Case statement, for example
Code:
Select Case Range("A1")
   Case "town"
      Range("B1")=1
   Case "city"
      Range("B1")=2
...
   Case Else
      Range("B1")=99
End Select
