I think what you want is to set the style to "2 - Dropdown List".  This will allow the user to select one of the 5 option but not to enter anything else.

I think you mean vbComboDropDownList, which is an alternative.

You should set the combo's style in the property list to "2 - Dropdown List".  The style is read only at runtime so you cannot set it in code.
