let's say i have a Combobox which contain a list (January , February ... December) .So what i want to do is , when u insert a value between 1 to 12 into a textbox , it'll automatically correspond to the comboBox listindex and selected the actual Month .

for exmaple , text1 = 3 , then the combobox will automatically shift to March .

Option Explicit
' Form with combo1 and Text1 controls.
' Combo1 populated with Jan,Feb, etc... (12 entries)
' Index of Jan=0, Index of Feb=1...

Private Sub Text1_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
   ' detect the enter key press
   If KeyCode = vbKeyReturn Then
   End If
End Sub

Private Sub Text1_Validate(Cancel As Boolean)
   ' Validation fires when focus is being shifted to a different control
End Sub
Private Sub PopCombo()
' Call this procedure at any time you want the text value examined
' and transferred into a combo box display...

   Dim vText As Single
   If Not IsNumeric(Text1) Then
      MsgBox "Not an integer 1-12"
      Text1 = ""
   Else 'is a numeric entry
      vText = Val(Text1)
      If vText > 0 And vText < 13 Then
         Combo1 = Combo1.List(vText - 1)
         MsgBox "Must be positive integer within range 1-12"
         Text1 = ""
