How to create a form dropdown/combobox that contains all of the active styles in a word document?

I need to create a combobox dropdown that contains all of the active styles in a word document. Would this be done by creating an array and then passing the array values to the combobox? what would the code for that look like?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can add items directly to a combobox on a UserForm with code like this
Private Sub cmdListStyles_Click()
    Dim sty As Style
    For Each sty In ActiveDocument.Styles
        If sty.InUse Then
            ComboBox1.AddItem sty.NameLocal
        End If
    Next sty
End Sub

The above doesn't seem to be returning any styles to the box. Perhaps I am missing something.

I figured it out. All it needed was to be put in a different module named as such:
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
     Dim sty As Style
     For Each sty In ActiveDocument.Styles
         If sty.InUse Then
              ComboBox1.AddItem sty.NameLocal
         End If
     Next sty
End Sub
