    I am trying to set up a combo drop down where the first box would be the part description, second part would be the realted cost...
    How do I do that?

    Clueless -

    As I interpreted your quesiton, you need a dropdown box that will include both the part number and the cost. if this is the case, is it possible for you to add a column in your source worksheet with a concatenation of the two columns (part and cost), possibly separated by a space if needs be? For example, if the part number was in column A, and the cost was in column B, add a column to your spreadsheet with the formula :

    =CONCATENATE(A1," ",B1)

    and copy down. Name this new column range (ex. New_Range), and put the name into the RowSource of your combo box.

    See if this helps. If not, let me know.

    P.S. - By the way, Plano's my home town . I'm in Dallas now, though.

    Hi clueless,

    You could also make your dropdown display the two columns by setting the ColumnCount property to 2 and setting the RowSource range to include both columns.
    Keep Excelling.
