The method is very simple and populates the combo box quite efficiently. However, when I try populating the text box, I get a run-time error '1004': Unable to get the VLookup property of the WorksheetFunction class. Kindly assist with resolving this error.

I just tried this code and was running into the same issue. I realized I had the xRg variable inside the UserForm block, so it was not being accessed by my ComboBox function. Maybe others are running into the same issue

Good day,
I have tried the code in Office 2010 32 bit, but no errors occured.
Please make sure the sheet name and cell range in the first VBA code are the same with your actual sheet name and range.

Hi Chaylon,
Have you replaced the sheet name in the below code line with your actual used worksheet name?
Set xRg = Worksheets("Sheet5").Range("A2:B8")
