I have noticed that using the up/down arrow keys when a combo box is pulled down generates the click event. I want the click event to be generated only if the user clicks on the item with the mouse or presses the ENTER key. How can I overcome this problem?

This will work better:
Dim ClickFlag As Boolean

Private Sub Combo1_Click()
If ClickFlag = True Then ClickFlag = False: Exit Sub 'reject if arrows used
'enter click code here

End Sub

Private Sub Combo1_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
ClickFlag = False
If KeyCode = 40 Or KeyCode = 38 Then ClickFlag = True
If KeyCode = 13 Then Combo1_Click
End Sub
