Hi,

I have an Excel application with an Orders userform containing a listbox. I'd like to highlight the text of those Listbox items which haven't yet been invoiced (I use a status text box to determine this).

Any ideas ?

thanks
Toco

ListBox1.Clear
Dim c As Long
c = 1
For Each cll In Range("Table1").Columns(1).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Cells
    ListBox1.AddItem cll.Value
    If Cells(cll, 5).Value <> "" Then
        ListBox1.items(c).ForeColor = vbRed
    End If
    c = c + 1
Next cll

Thanks for your help.

I load my listbox from an array in one single statement for speed and efficiency.....

   liSales.List = SalesArray()

Is it possible to act on the listbox items directly, in some way or another? For example......

      If  liSales.Items(rowno,colno).Value <> "Invoiced"  Then
           liSales.Items(row).ForeColor = vbRed
      End If

I tried the above but I couldn't get it to work

I tried your code too and couldn't get that to work either. Did you test your code ?

I found out elsewhere that Listbox controls cannot be formatted in the way I wish. However ListView controls (an Add-in) are  formattable.
