I am using this code to auto populate a user form.  I only takes one initial before it auto pops the form.  I would like to enter both as I have several employees with the same first initial

Private Sub ComboBox1_Change() 'auto pop by initials
Dim idx As Long

    idx = ComboBox1.ListIndex

    If idx <> -1 Then

        With Sheets("EmployeeName")
            TxtFname.Value = .Range("B" & idx + 2).Value 'fname
           
            TxtLName.Value = .Range("C" & idx + 2).Value 'lastname
           
            TxtStatus.Value = .Range("F" & idx + 2).Value 'status
           
            TxtHDept.Value = .Range("D" & idx + 2).Value 'HDept
           
            TxtUPH.Value = .Range("G" & idx + 2).Value 'UPH
           
      End With
       
    End If

    'new
    CB2FunctionCode.SetFocus
   
End Sub

Your code should be in the Click event rather than the Change event. That way it will execute when the user makes his selection.

Yes.

If that doesn't work then please attach your workbook, or an obfuscated one if the data is sensitive.
