I am trying to access a combobox value through vba.  However my code is not working.

The code is in a module so I figured I'd have to specify a sheet and I'd be okay.

Sub cboFight1_Change()
    Dim curVal As String
    curVal = ActiveSheet.cboFight1.Value
   
    MsgBox curVal
End Sub

I get an object doesn't support that property or method.

Any ideas,
JOe K.

That seems way overly complicated though.
