Try this:

Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()

    Range("ao17").Value = ComboBox1.List(ComboBox1.ListIndex, 0)
    Range("ap17").Value = ComboBox1.List(ComboBox1.ListIndex, 1)
    Range("aq17").Value = ComboBox1.List(ComboBox1.ListIndex, 2)
    Range("ar17").Value = ComboBox1.List(ComboBox1.ListIndex, 3)
    Range("as17").Value = ComboBox1.List(ComboBox1.ListIndex, 4)
    Range("at17").Value = ComboBox1.List(ComboBox1.ListIndex, 5)
    
End Sub

In that case, more details would be nice. As you can see, all selected items populate the cells you mentioned in one go.
