I wonder if anyone can help me. I'm trying to load the comboboxes with data from a different worksheet. However, no matter what code I try it only loads from the active sheet. Here's an example of one of the subs that I tried.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!



Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()

If ComboBox1.Value = "" Then
ComboBox2.Clear
ElseIf ComboBox1.Value = "Income" Then

ComboBox2.RowSource = Worksheets("Sheet3").Range("F1", "F5").Address

ElseIf ComboBox1.Value = "Costs" Then
ComboBox2.RowSource = Worksheets("Sheet3").Range("G1", "G5").Address
End If

End Sub

You need to include the sheet name.
Code:
Combobox2.RowSource = "Sheet3!F1:F5"
