I have a combo box that holds titles of different sections of an .ini file. When a selection is made it gets the data from .ini file. The data is then loaded into a Mshflexgrid. Users can add and rename sections. I have 1 section that cannot be renamed or deleted called "All Materials". I never know the index as it can change when sections are added or deleted
How can i programically select "All materials"

Not sure how you want to use it, but let's start with this

Dim l As Integer
For l = 0 To Combo1.ListCount - 1
    If Combo1.List(l) = "All Materials" Then
        Combo1.Text = Combo1.List(l)
        Exit For
    End If
Next l
0

Thank you
I modified it to select the item and it works.
For l = 0 To Combo1.ListCount - 1
    If Combo1.List(l) = "All Materials" Then
        'Combo1.Text = Combo1.List(l)
Combo1.ListIndex = 1
        Exit For
    End If
Next l

Yes. That, too, would do it.
