Hello srikanthv,

Here is a revised code for the add item button considering this.


-RK

Private Sub AddButton1_Click()

'Adds a new value to listbox2
If NewItem.Value = "" Then
MsgBox ("Please fill in value")
Exit Sub
End If

For i = 1 To ListBox2.ListCount

If NewItem.Value = ListBox2.List(i - 1) Then
MsgBox (NewItem.Value & " aleady exists at place " & i & " in list box.")
Exit Sub
End If

Next i




ListBox2.AddItem (NewItem.Value)
NewItem.Value = ""


End Sub

Open in new window
