I have a combo box in a UserForm. How can I copy the value that I pick in the combo box  into a certain cell on Excel sheet? I found something similar. However, how can I do it without pressing enter as there will not be any keyboard available when the program is put on a touchscreen monitor.
Private Sub TextBox2_KeyDown(ByVal KeyCode As MSForms.ReturnInteger)

    If KeyCode = 13 Then
      Worksheets("GUI").Cells(25, 3) = TextBox2
    End If

End Sub

So why not just use "Worksheets("GUI").Cells(25, 3) = TextBox2"?

The "If statement with KeyCode = 13" is the "is the enter key pressed" condition.

VB.NET does not support default properties in the same manner as VB6 so I think that you will want to change TextBox2 to TextBox2.Text.  Also seeing as you were checking for the enter key you might want to move this loigc to the Validated Event instead of checking on every key stroke.
