Hi Experts,

I have an Excel VBA User form with a Listbox control (called 'liSales').

I want to search through the Listbox items on the first field (Invoice number, actually) and return the ListIndex value when a matching entry is found.

What is the most efficient way of coding this ?

Thanks
Toco

Hi

pls try

Dim i   As Long
Found = False
With Me.liSales
    For i = 0 To .ListCount - 1 
        If .List(i, 1)  = "Your Value" Then 
            Idx = i
            Found = True
        End If 
    Next 
End With

Open in new window

Thanks for that. I didn't realise you could access the list in the listbox as if it was an array.
