Setting the value of a combo box

I have a combo box (ListType) with the values:

ListType.additem ("1")
                              2
                              3
                              4
                              5
                              6

On_Load I want to set the value of the ComboBox

     ListType=3

then take the listindex of the combo box and set it equal to another combobox

     ListTypeF.ListIndex=ListType.ListIndex

How can I do this?

Do you mean something like this?

Private Sub Form_Load()
With ListType
    .AddItem "1"
    .AddItem "2"
    .AddItem "3"
    .AddItem "4"
    .AddItem "5"
    .AddItem "6"
End With

With ListTypeF
    .AddItem "1"
    .AddItem "2"
    .AddItem "3"
    .AddItem "4"
    .AddItem "5"
    .AddItem "6"
End With

ListType.ListIndex = 2 ' to set to #3

ListTypeF.ListIndex = ListType.ListIndex


End Sub

or maybe:

Private Sub Form_Load()
With ListType
    .AddItem "1"
    .AddItem "2"
    .AddItem "3"
    .AddItem "4"
    .AddItem "5"
    .AddItem "6"
End With

ListType.Text = "3"

ListTypeF.Text = ListType.Text

End Sub

My appologies, ListTypeF contains

     ListTypeF.additem "Stuff"
                                   "dshgaljsh"

are all all words... This is why I am trying to use there listindex.

also ListType may have diffrent numbers in diffrent circumstances therefore I can not say .listindex=3 because sometimes that will give me a "2" and other times a "6"

Sorry,

How about:


Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim i As Integer

With ListType
    .AddItem "1"
    .AddItem "2"
    .AddItem "3"
    .AddItem "4"
    .AddItem "5"
    .AddItem "6"
End With

With ListTypeF
    .AddItem "Item1"
    .AddItem "Item2"
    .AddItem "Item3"
    .AddItem "Item4"
    .AddItem "Item5"
    .AddItem "Item6"
End With

ListType.Text = "3"

For i = 0 To ListType.ListCount - 1
    If ListType.List(i) = ListType.Text Then
        Exit For
    End If
Next i

ListTypeF.ListIndex = i


End Sub

You could also add this to the ListType's click event to have ListTypeF to change when listType is changed:

Private Sub ListType_Click()
Dim i As Integer
For i = 0 To ListType.ListCount - 1
    If ListType.List(i) = ListType.Text Then
        Exit For
    End If
Next i

ListTypeF.ListIndex = i
End Sub
