Hi All,

Having a hard time with what I thought was easy.

I have a visual basic script in Excel 2003.  I have a combobx named "ComboBox1".  How do i print out the current value in combobox???

I have tried just
MsgBox (ComboBox1.Value)

to print out the value and this does not work.

Have you tried .Text?
Private Sub Combo1_Click()

  Debug.Print Combo1.Text

End Sub

Open in new window

Hi eql1044,

If I run _ClicK(), nothing happens when I change the drop down.

If I run:
Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
  Debug.Print Combo1.Text
End Sub


I get Run-time error '424'

Thnaks!

Did you try with the name of your ComboBox object?
Msgbox ComboBox1.Text

Open in new window
