    Hi, I made an action list for internal use with automatic email reminders in Excel, based on macro and vba. in a cell you select which person to send the reminder to, in a next cell you select which person to CC etc. Is it a good idea to copy this dropdownlist a few 100 times to every possible entry that I supply ? And is it possible to add a rule: Per row a particular person can only be selected once?

    How can I use this? I have two problem
    1st I would like use ComboBox1 for a full column, so I have D column, it should see empty.
    When I click into a cell in D column example D7 or D8(etc) I should get a Combo in D7 or D8 etc cell and after select just see the result, not the combo too.

    But how can I add combobox dynamically to D2, D4, D11 etc when click or before.
    I need for I can search with typing too, so simple(not active-x) combo is wrong.

    2nd how set padding? - my combo text when I search is not see whole because itt has padding.

    3th if my source is C column, how drop empty elements from list

    Is there a way to prioritize the location of a letter in a word? I used this method, but when I type in "A," for example, I get terms with "A" anywhere in the word. I would prefer if it started showing all the terms that begin with "A". Is this possible?

    I may have misunderstood how this function is supposed to work, but i can only get the combo box search to populate one cell, A12 (using the example from the tutorial). If i click into A13 to populate the next cell with a different value from the drop down, it just replaces what i have in A12 and does not populate A13. I need this search to apply to any cell in column A from A12 down. Have i done something incorrect or does this combo box search only allow a single cell in the workbook to be populated with the result? Will be grateful for any help with this.

    Hello, thanks for the tutorial! I'm having an issue where every time I type in the combo box, "DropDownList1" disappears from the "ListFillRange" property. So long as I don't type in the box, if I retype "DropDownList1" in the property, the box does show suggestions. I have looked everything over and could not find any errors. Is this a common problem, and is there a way to fix it? Thank you for your time!

      Dear Ben,
      I am also comfusing about the disappearing of the "DripDownList" from the "ListFillRange" property
      But it does not influence the finally rsult of making the drop-down list seachable.

    I've had an ongoing issue with all documents I've used this method on. A shadow of the drop-down box reappears underneath it each time I click into another cell within the spreadsheet and begin typing. It's beyond just a nuisance because when the shadow drops down, it prevents use of any additional searchable drop-down boxes. Please help!!! This is affecting multiple documents we use throughout our organization.

    4. In the Properties dialog box, you need to:
    1). Select False in the AutoWordSelect field;
    2). Specify a cell in the LinkedCell field. In this case, we enter A12;

    Why A12? thank's

    I, like Cristina above, would also like to know how to make multiple combo boxes for one sheet. I tried but when I begin typing in the second combobox two things happen: 1. no drop down list appears, and 2. the simple act of typing in combobox2 activates the selection from my original combobox1 and highlights it in the drop down from combobox1. I checked to make sure all of my coding says combobox2 for combobox2 etc. for the other boxes but there is a disconnect that I can't figure out.

      Thanks.[/quote]

      I posted this answer above for IMAD and saw this posting down here for MAARTEN so I figured I'd post this for him too.

      I have seen this "how to make an autofill / auto suggest DDL / combo box" on a few different sites and they ALL want you to put "something" in the ListFillRange Properties field [b]BEFORE[/b] they have you [b]create a named range[/b] by clicking Formula > Define Name ....... and the [b]ListFillRange will always go blank in the Properties window[/b] UNTIL you define the name (Formula > Define Name)

      THAT is why i think IMAD, above and MAARTEN below (here) was having the problem - not 100% sure though.

    For some reason when I click a selection from the drop down list after typing a few characters the drop down main value becomes blank... any idea why this would happen and how to get it to stop?

    I have a command button that I want to click to then put the selection into the next available cell in a given range, but again the value blanks out when I click on it.
