I currently have a Microsoft Excel document which uses data validation lists pulled from another worksheet, these work perfectly fine. I needed the ability to auto complete the data validation list entries as they were being added to speed up data entry so found on the internet via Google a work around which uses a Combo Box overlay above the Data Validation and then some VB code to allow you to link the two together and use the auto complete.
The problem I have is, the above works fine when you double click the cell which has a drop down validation list as when you do this the edit mode is through the Combo Box and the auto complete works. However, if you tab across to the cell or press F2 to edit the box it edits the Drop Down validation box and the auto complete fails to work.
Is there any way I can modify this so I can tab across to the cell and press F2 to edit or just edit as a normal cell so the auto complete works and it edits via the Combo Box instead of the Data Validation drop down list?
The example I used was from the following website:
Any assistance with the above would be really appreciated.
