I have set up a combo box, but the data is very small. How can I change the size of the data that appears in the combo box?
Thanks!

How to fill five years of quarters?
Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

I'm assuming a few things here.
One, that you're using a combobox that's planted directly on the sheet and two, it's from the Forms toolbar.
If these are correct, try using the combobox from the Control Toolbox toolbar. You can then set the font to any size you like in the font property.

Hope it helps,
Dan

Help again, please? I went to the control toolbox for the combo box, but don't know where to specify the data for the drop down.

Thanks,
Jan

Hi,

right click on the combobox and then click on properties.

The listfillrange will be the source of your data, say A1:A50 as an example.

The Linkedcell would be where you would like the selected item to populate on your spreadsheet.

Thanks...that is what I thought, but it is not working. I keep getting the move arrows when I go to the box.

Hi,

I am not sure I understand what you mean by move arrows?

Okay, I think I understandd now. Click on the design button of the ActiveX Controls Toolbar. You must be in design mode to access the properties.

Hi Jan,
Ron's steering you in the right direction.
While in design mode, right click your ComboBox, choose Properties and then scroll down the properties window. When you see the property "ListFillRange" simply enter the range of your list.
Once you're done setting the font properties you want, you should be good to go.

Hope it helps,
Dan
