I don't understand. VB6 forms keep staying until you unload them (manually or by code).

Your code seems to be working for me.
I created a new project, dropped a command button on the form (default name "Command1") and a combo box (default name "Combo1") then paste the following code into the form's code.

I've got VB6 SP6
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim fso As Object
    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    If Combo1.Text = "" Or IsNull(Combo1.Text) Then
    MsgBox "Please Select a Document Type", vbCritical, "Error..."
    Combo1.SetFocus
    End If
End Sub

Open in new window

make sure you several combo box check in place and see what happen
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim fso As Object
    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    If Combo1.Text = "" Or IsNull(Combo1.Text) Then
    MsgBox "Please Select a Document Type", vbCritical, "Error..."
    Combo1.SetFocus
    End If
   If Combo2.Text = "" Or IsNull(Combo2.Text) Then
    MsgBox "Please Select a Document Type", vbCritical, "Error..."
    Combo2.SetFocus
    End If
   If Combo3.Text = "" Or IsNull(Combo3.Text) Then
    MsgBox "Please Select a Document Type", vbCritical, "Error..."
    Combo3.SetFocus
    End If
End Sub
