I have the following code to populate a combo box and add a hidden value (index) to each item.

But when I run the application, it comed up with the following error: -

Runtime Error 13
Type Mismatch

And I can't work out why.

The Combo box is definitely named 'assigned', I've also tried different names.

Help is greatly appreciated.
' Populate
    assigned.AddItem ("UNASSIGNED")
    assigned.AddItem ("Name 1")
    assigned.AddItem ("Name 2")
    
    'Add Indexes for each name
    
    assigned.ItemData(1) = "Unassigned" <-- Error
    assigned.ItemData(1) = "George" <-- Error
    assigned.ItemData(2) = "Luke" <-- Error
