I have a ComboBox3 on userform1, that I would like to default to "Select from List" when the userform is shown.  I have other comboboxes that I would like shown blank.  Currently they are all blank and I am not sure how I did that.

How do I show the "Select from List" default value, and not have it as part of the list to select from.

Please advise and thanks. -R-

The text property in the Combobox would give you what you want. You can do it programatically, or you can just change the Text Property by clicking on your combobox and then going to Properties section and look for Text.

What is the programatic code version of this command so I can reset it to blank and reset focus to the combobox?  -R-
