Hello All,

There is form that has a drop down combobox….on selecting an option out of the list for example…if I start typing “w”, then it selects WER but what happens it that it calls the macro at the same time , which make things longer to wait
Once I type in “W” and it selects “Wer”, then the macro should be called and it does it stuff…how to do that?
What’s now happening is when I type in “W”, it selects “WER” and calls the macro and the users has to wait while he was not able to properly  see what selection was made by him. The moment he types in only one letter (like W), it triggers the macro…
What needs to happen …is user should be able to type in a letter or string in the combobox and the combobox will then fill out “Wer” and then on that correct select, then the macro will be called

Am I using the wrong combobox code (combobox on change ) to call the macro?
