I have a worksheet with about 300 rows x 2 columns, A and B. I also have a listbox with information in Column C

How can I keep the listbox visible while I am scrolling the worksheet? Right now it scrolls with the worksheet and quickly cannot be seen. I want it to stay in the viewing area of the scrolling worksheet.
Here is an image of the basic sheet:
 Initial View
Here is another image of the worksheet half hidden during scrolling.
 View after scrolling
I want the ListBox to remain visible during the time the worksheet is scrolling. Any idea how to do this with VBA?

Thanks in advance.

This may be of use to you. Make the listbox into a textbox control on a form and set the Modal property of the form to false.

Why make the listbox into a textbox? You can add a listbox to a userform just as easily.

You're right rorya, you can simply use the listbox control on a form and it works just as well. I was following the example I found without thinking it through completely. The form will 'float' in the area you set it and not roll up as you scroll down.
