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.

Windows Explorer lets you open cabinet (cab) files like any other folder. In VBA you can easily handle normal files and folders, but opening and indeed creating cabinet files takes a lot more - and that's you'll find here.
