I know this is a simple task, but i am very weak with comboboxes on my userform, i can additems by inserting them into the code. but how do i add these items from an excel worksheet.  For example i need to add the data from a sheet labeled qcdata4 cell ag26,ag30,ag44,ag52. I know this has to be done in a userform intialize event but do not know the code. any help would be greatly appreciated.

*** I ASSUME YOU ONLY HAVE 4 ITEMS IN COMBOBOX ALL THE TIME
*** This may not be the exact solution but it will get you
*** started


Dim EApp As Excel.Application
Dim ESheet As Excel.Worksheet
Dim EBook As Excel.Workbook

Set EApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
EApp.Visible = False
EApp.Workbooks.Add
Set EBook = EApp.ActiveWorkbook
Set ESheet = EBook.Worksheets.ActiveSheet

Combo1.ListIndex = 0
ESheet.Range("AG26").Value = Combo1.Text
Combo1.ListIndex = 1
ESheet.Range("AG30").Value = Combo1.Text
Combo1.ListIndex = 2
ESheet.Range("AG44").Value = Combo1.Text
Combo1.ListIndex = 3
ESheet.Range("AG52").Value = Combo1.Text

EBook.SaveAs ("C:\Test.xls")
EApp.Application.Quit
Set EApp = Nothing
Set ESheet = Nothing
Set EBook = Nothing

make sure you reference Excel Object.
1. click Project from menu
2. click References
3. Look for Excel Object Library (any version) then click OK
