Have you created a separate form for that?

I ask because the form in the workbook you attached previously seemed to be for updating a different table/sheet.

PS Could you upload your current workbook?

In the UpdateEmployeeEntry userform. There don't see to be input fields for the two with "???".

Private Sub ccmdAdd_Click()
   Dim lastrow As Long
   
   With Sheets("EmployeeName")
     lastrow = .Range("A1048576").End(xlUp).Row
    .Cells(lastrow + 1, "A").Value = TextBox1.Text
    .Cells(lastrow + 1, "B").Value = TextBox8.Text
    .Cells(lastrow + 1, "C").Value = TextBox9.Text
    .Cells(lastrow + 1, "D").Value = TextBox10.Text
    '.Cells(lastrow + 1, "E").Value = ???
    .Cells(lastrow + 1, "G").Value = TextBox3.Text
    '.Cells(lastrow + 1, "H").Value = ???
   End With

End Sub

Open in new window

I got this to work.  I needed to add the list index to the combo box.

Now I just want to edit and update and not create an additional record

In order to update an employee record, one needs to be selected first, and I believe the best way to do that would be to have the "Show Employee Add or Update" button on the EmployeeName sheet rather than the Home sheet. Is that acceptable?

I am using the list index to populate the Show employee Add or Update userform.  If the information is already in the useform can I change it and re write the new info back to the table?

Huh? The only way I see to show that userform is by clicking the "Show Employee Add or Update" button that's on the EmployeeName sheet.

Now I'm totally confused because in a post above you said

I am using the list index to populate the Show employee Add or Update userform.  If the information is already in the useform can I change it and re write the new info back to the table?

but as far as I can see there is no combobox or listbox associated with that userform, so what list index are you talking about?
