"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here's an example for you:
Private Sub TextBox1_Change()
    If TextBox1.Value = "Yes" Then
        ComboBox1.Enabled = False
        ComboBox1.Enabled = True
    End If
End Sub

The option you probably want is enabled eg

ComboBox1.Enabled = False

Have a look at this link for some general information on ComboBoxes


if you are still having issues please give more details as to the type of control eg ActiveX or Form Control and what you are trying to do. A sample workbook would also greatly assist
