Try this version and if it's not what you want then please describe the problem(s) as I explained above.

BTW I change your topic from ACT to MS Excel and VBA.

Exactly what I needed.

So what I wanted was for the Tab and Enter key to function as it normally would in excel, since the combo box makes it unable to set cell value and move to the corresponding cell with that key.

Thanks a lot for your assistance.
