How do you intend to "Select" a value from column A? Do you just put the cursor on the value?

Saqib Husain, SyedEngineerCommented:
If you want to place the cursor on the value then
You can use this code in the worksheet module

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    If Target.Column = 1 Then
        Sheet2.Range("A2").Resize(5).Value = Target.Value
        Sheet3.Range("A2").Resize(10).Value = Target.Offset(, 1).Value
    End If
End Sub

Open in new window


To use the code
Right-click on the sheet tab name
Select View code
Paste this code in the VBA window
Close the VBA window

See Combobox on sheet1. This code is used to populate it:
Private Sub ComboBox1_GotFocus()
Dim r As Long

r = Sheet1.Range("A1").Offset(Sheet1.Rows.Count - 1, 0).End(xlUp).Row
    With ComboBox1
        .ColumnCount = 2
        .List = Range("A2:B" & r).Value
    End With

End Sub

Open in new window

If more locations are added, they will appear in the combobox.
