Excel 2003: Combobox: Invalid Property Value

If I make a combobox on a form. Set "Match Required" = True for that combobox and try to put an invalid value in the combobox I get the following message...

"Invalid Property Value".

This is not a intuitive message and if you have ever had multiple comboboxes on a form, the user won't know which one has the invalid entry

Is there a way to change this message? (i.e. "You have entered an invalid name in the name combobox, please select a name from the dropdown

instead of forcing the combobox matching, Set the property to false

Check the 'change' event of the combobox  .matchfound
if the box's Text property matches with any element,

if it doesn't, send a custom msgbox and select a default value.
