I am sure this has been answered before, but I don't feel like searching through 5000 questions.  How do you autoselect the first item in a drop-down combo box.  I have added all of the items in there, but I want the first item to be pre-selected.

Now that I've locked in the answer, to avoid errors in case the list is empty, you should use this code:
If Combo1.ListCount > 0 Then
  Combo1.ListIndex = 0
Else
  Combo1.ListIndex = -1
End If

That doesn't allow me to select anything, it autoselects it and then invokes the click event.  I mis-worded the question.  I want the first item to appear, but not be pre-selected.

Oh, in that case:
Combo1.Text = Combo1.List(0)
(use the error avoiding code above)
