Hi. I was given the VBA code below to add a DropDown to a cell. How do I modify it so that it fits into the cell and what code would I add so that if the user changes the cells size the DropDown automatically changes too

With ActiveSheet.DropDowns.Add(142.5, 38.25, 108.75, 24)
    .Top = Range("C1").Top
    .Left = Range("C1").Left
End With

Add this to the sheet module

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
With ActiveSheet.DropDowns.Add(142.5, 38.25, 108.75, 24)
    .Top = Range("C1").Top
    .Left = Range("C1").Left
    .height= Range("C1").height
    .width= Range("C1").width
End With
End Sub

Open in new window


This will be triggered every the cursor is moved on the sheet but not when the cell height or width is modifies.
