This is a logical function question.
I have a user form with a combobox drop down list of items. I have a macro that is activated when one of the items, "Continued", is selected. However I would like a macro to be activated when the user decides to select a different item - changed from "Continued" - to another value in the combobox. A change of item to any other item from any other item does not activate a macro.
to help explain myself I came up with this macro:

Code:
If Combobox1.Value = "Continued" Then
Macro1
if Combobox1.Value =  any value changed FROM "continued" then
Macro2
if Combobox1.Value =  any value but "Continued" FROM any value but "Continued" then
do nothing

Please feel free to ask any question.

Thank you!
Nicole

Try this

Code:
Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
Static Sel As Variant

If ComboBox1.Text = Sel Then
  MsgBox "don't Do Anything"
ElseIf ComboBox1.Text = "Continue" And Sel <> "Continue" Then
  MsgBox "Changed to Continue"
ElseIf ComboBox1.Text <> "Continue" And Sel = "Continue" Then
  MsgBox "Changed away from Continue"
End If
Sel = ComboBox1.Text

End Sub
