Extended listbox selections to cells

Hi Experts,

I have a list box (Countrylst) that has names of countries in it. I need to be able to select Multiple countries so have set its selection type to 'extended' (it is on a worksheet - 'Location' in an excel file).

I need to get the countries that have been selected into a cell so that I can use the country names elsewhere in the workbook. Obviously when I have the selection type set to 'single' I can get a number reference for the selection (eg cell N1 returns Cambodia if it has been selected). How do I get the results when the listbox is extended?

I'm sure this is possible but not sure where the code needs to go or what it needs to do...

Thanks in advance for your help!

You say you want the selections in a cell, how would you see it formated?
Would they be comma seperated?
With all in one cell would they be useful, or would them being in all cells from a set cell down be better?

Which type of listbox is it, Forms or ActiveX?

This code is for a control from the Forms toolbox.
Sub GetAllSelectedFromFormsListBox()
Dim lst As Object
Dim I As Long
Dim arrSelected()
Dim cnt As Long
Dim Delim As String

    Delim = ","

    Set lst = [Countrylst]

    For I = 1 To [Countrylst].ListCount
        If [Countrylst].Selected(I) Then
            ReDim Preserve arrSelected(cnt)

            arrSelected(cnt) = [Countrylst].List(I)

            cnt = cnt + 1
        End If
    Next I

    If cnt > 0 Then

        ' put in cell as delimited list
        Range("B1").Value = Join(arrSelected, Delim)

        ' put in row
        Range("D1").Resize(, UBound(arrSelected) + 1).Value = arrSelected

        ' put in column
        Range("B3").Resize(UBound(arrSelected) + 1).Value = Application.Transpose(arrSelected)
        
    End If

End Sub

Open in new window


The code for an ActiveX listbox will be similar, with some changes in the loop.
