Hi

I am looking for a macro that will pop up an input box so the user can add an item to a named range used in a drop down list. E.g. sheet one column A is populated via a named range called colours which has three items. If the user enters another colour (via and input box) in list box i need it to check it doesn't already exist and then add it to the list and increase the range for the list box.

Any help appreciated

Thank you

Mykal

Not sure how to mark this as solved or edit to reflect the same. I've managed to figure this one out now

Sub Button1_Click()
Dim strName As String
Dim Result
Dim newEntry As Variant, rws As Long, adr As String


strName = InputBox(Prompt:="Add Additional Colour", _
Title:="ADD COLOUR", Default:="Enter Colour Here!")
If strName = "Enter Colour Here!" Or _
strName = vbNullString Then
Exit Sub
Else

On Error Resume Next
Result = WorksheetFunction.Match(strName, Range("Colours"), False)
If Err = 0 Then
MsgBox "The Colour you have entered already exists"
Else

newEntry = strName
rws = Range("Colours").Rows.Count
Range("Colours").Cells(1, 1).Offset(rws, _
0).Value = newEntry
With Range("Colours").Name
adr = .RefersTo
.Delete
End With
Range(adr).Resize(rws + 1, 1).Name = "Colours"
Err.Clear
End If
On Error GoTo 0
End If
End Sub
