need to disablechange events for user form combobox

Hi

I have a combobox (at B3) which includes the option to select 'other'. In this case an input box appears to allow the user to add a business name to the combobox's linked list (at column BJ).

The problem is that the change to the list triggers the change event and the input box reappears.

I thought this was solved yesterday, but the solution (enable.events =false....etc) only worked once.

Any help would be much appreciated

Oh, I didn't read your question all the way.

In any case you don't have enableevents = False anywhere in your code that you posted.

It worked once. Then it never worked again.
I have read that for user forms (Although I am just using a form control on the worksheet)you need to set me.enable as boolean...or something to that effect, but It's a little beyond me at the moment.

A solution to the problem is attached. It involves a boolean variable I added named bAddingToList.

BTW if in the future you ever want to use EnableEvents there's no need to do Public EnableEvents As Boolean. EnableEvents is a built-in property of Excel so all you need to do is Application.EnableEvents = True (or of course False).
