I am working with a combobox that is sorted.  I want to add an item after the sorted items are entered that will be at the top of the combobox... like NONE.

I don't want to use a space or an underscore to move it to the top... anyway to do this???

Thanks!

No.  The only other way would be for you to maintain the sorted items and leave the Sort property = False.

Indeed, sort the items first and then add them to the combo box is the only way of doing this.

'with.sorted is true
   
    Combo1.AddItem "Bunk"
    Combo1.AddItem "Abunk"

note that your combo has .sorted=true in properties.

You are right.  I overlooked that solution.

..so did I, it was an accident, I was trying to change sorted to .false then add it to the top - you can't change to .false, but adding it to the top still seems to work.

Alternately you can do what Microsoft did ni its properties listing (with name, custom, etc.) and surround it with parentheses:  "(None)"

This will also reinforce the idea that this is not part of the dataset.

Sorry for the delay on this... I used your idea of "(None)".  Works fine now.

Glad you liked the idea (even if it came from Microsoft), and thanks for the "A" grade.
