I have a combo box and it does populate all the open workbooks I do have but now I'm trying to make it go to the selected workbook upon selection... I'm doing something wrong but can't overcome it.. this is basically what I have to load the new window

Private Sub WBList_Change()
Dim WB As Workbook
WB = WorkList.WBList.Value
Application.Workbooks(WB).Activate
End Sub

This does not work :(... I know it's probably a very simple fix but my brain can't wrap around it...
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

Is it?

Code:
Private Sub WBList_Change() 
   Dim WB As Workbook 
   Set WB = Workbooks(WBList.Value)
   WB.Activate 
End Sub

This still gives me a type mismatch and the debugger stops @

Set WB = Workbooks(WBList.Value)

Hmmm.. nevermind I think I figured it out.. it was the chain of events that caused the Form to refresh and after a few cycles the value of WBList became "" and didn't work... Thanks...
