Greetings Experts!

I have a dashboard that has many listboxes.  In the listbox I would like to be able to take my mouse and use the scrolling option to control the listbox (Up or Down).  How can I do this?  Thanks

I don't believe you can. There is no native functionality for this.

Let me rephrase that - you can, using the windows API, but it's complicated. If you want to pursue it, see Jaafar's post here: http://www.mrexcel.com/forum/showthread.php?t=422033

Use at your own risk.
