Headings for Multi Column Listbox

Last Modified: 2014-02-22
I have a multicolumn list box in Excel 2010. I can populate its 5 columns but I cannot see how to add headings for each column.

I have set ColumnHeads=TRUE.

Any ideas please?

How have you populated the listbox?

You can only have headings if yo've populated it from a range.

If you populated it any other way, eg AddItem, List etc,  no headings I'm afraid.

You could add labels above the columns or use a ListView control instead.

Or you could add a small one row listbox above the existing listbox.

This listbox would contain the headers and would have the same column widths as the existing listbox.

A wee bit easier than trying to line up labels to columns.

Shame Microsoft (or the authors of VBA can't provide a simple solution. But yours stirred up my brain to find ways round. Many thanks
