i use "c" grades sparingly, take a look at my profile.

anyways, the first answer gave no selection in the combo box.  (it was blank, no item at all)

your answer gave me the item i wanted, but the text within the combobox was selected (which is what i was asking how not to do)

the reason your code doesnt work, is it selects the text as position zero.  mine selects the text at the last position, or so to speak, leaves it unselected.  

you didnt provide me with a thourough answer, thats why i gave you a "c"
