Combo Box VB Question

Combo Box VB Question

Combo Box VB Question

I am in need of the code required to add a simple combo box to an existing macro.  I would like to have the abilty to select an individual user name from a A pull down list.

Also is there an easy way to force upper case text in a text box?

Please be as descriptive and possibly provide the code as I am just beginning VB and have no clue.

Not sure if it's important but all of my code for the macro is associated with the userform.

RE: Combo Box VB Question

One way to get all caps in a text box is to use text1.text=ucase(text1.text). If you put this in the textbox's change event it should keep all characters uppercase.

Probably a better idea would be to let the user type what they want then convert to upper case when you compare values. For example, if your code does something like this: if (text1.text = somestringvar); you could instead use: if (ucase(text1.text) = somestringvar). This would allow the user to type both upper or lowercase but would convert to uppercase for the comparison. This would probably be both friendlier to the user and easier to do.
