Hello Everyone,


I have 2 Activex ComboBoxes on a sheet and I am trying to populate the range in the 2nd combobox based on the value in the first combobox.
Here is my code. But whenever I run it, I get the following error:
"Runtime error 424, Object required" .. Please Help!
Note: Linked Cell for ComboBox1 is D1


Code:
<code>Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
    Dim SubType As String
    SubType = Range("$D$1").Value
    Select Case SubType
        Case "Fruits"
          ComboBox2.ListFillRange = "Fruits_Range"
        Case "Vegetables"
            ComboBox2.ListFillRange = "Veg_Range"
    End Select
End Sub
</code>
I defined Fruits_Range and Veg_Range using Formula > Name Manager
Here is the logic: If someone selects "Fruits" from the 1st List box, then I would like to display a list of fruits in the 2nd box.


I know I could do pretty much the same thing using Data Validation Lists, but my boss would like me to use ActiveX ComboBoxes and dont ask me why! :)


Quick help would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Ajain
