reference a combobox

I just placed a combobox that lists the 12 months of the year on an Excel worksheet.  The user is to select the applicable month.  Is there a way to reference the selection so that it appears in the middle header section when printing the worksheet?   Hopefully it can be referenced in some way without having to set up a macro.

Thanks

Is the combobox linked to a cell?

No.  I don't know how to do that but it would be good if it was.

How did you create the combobox?

Was it from the Format or ActiveX toolbox?
dbfromnewjerseyAuthor Commented:
OK. I see what you meant. I set the linked cell property (I'm using an Active X control) and I'm getting the selection to appear in the linked cell.   I'll try to then reference the cell in the header.  Will report back shortly whether I got it to work or not.

I found out a header can't reference a cell but you information about linking a combobox to  a cell helped me figure out an alternate way to handle things.   Thanks.
