One way I found that worked.

Use an Advanced Filter to copy the data to another location and specify Unique Records Only.  Then use that data as the source for you Combobox.

Hope this helps,

Cheers,

Here's a simple macro:

Sub FillCombo()
Dim sht As Worksheet
Dim lRow As Long
Dim sValue As String

    Set sht = Sheets(2) 'data sheet
    lRow = 1 'startrow
   
    On Error Resume Next
    With ComboBox1
        .Clear
        .Style = fmStyleDropDownList
        Do
            sValue = sht.Cells(lRow, 1).Value
            If Len(sValue) = 0 Then Exit Do 'exit if no value
            .Text = sValue
            If Err.Number <> 0 Then 'not added yet
                .AddItem sValue
            End If
            Err.Clear
            lRow = lRow + 1
        Loop
    End With
End Sub
