I would like to make a listbox based on a column of data in an Excel spreadsheet, just like the one generated when you turn the AutoFilter on.  (I would like it to contain one of every different entry in the column, arranged alphabetically.) How do I do this?  Is there a function I can use? Thank you.

Please, does anyone have any ideas?  Is it simply impossible? Or very difficult?

Thank you very very much... I'm just having a hard time believing it's that easy!   I spent over 3 hours trying to work that out, and have now waited over 3 months for the answer!  Thank-you very much!!

YIKES...  I can't get that to work in a dialog box though. (It just works on the spreadsheet itself.)  Is their any way to create an autofilter-like listbox in a form?
