    I would like to create a VBA procedure that adds an ActiveX combo box in a worksheet, and sets the properties, specifically the ListFillRange, Linkedcell, and Boundcolumn. I would like the placement to be on the row right after the last populated cell on column D.

    I understand that I will create a button that runs a procedure which adds a listbox, but I have not been able to change it’s properties.

    I appreciate the help.

      Try using “object”: (there are other ways, like using Shapes, I use this because I also need the objOLE for other reasons)

      Dim wsRec As Worksheet
      Dim sName As String
      Dim objOLE As OLEObject

      Set wsRec = ThisWorkbook.Sheets(“Recs”)

      wsRec.OLEObjects.Add(ClassType:=”Forms.ComboBox.1″, Link:=False, DisplayAsIcon:=False, _
      Left:=180, Top:=18.75, Width:=129, Height:=18.75).Name = sName
      Set objOLE = wsRec.OLEObjects(sName)
      objOLE.Object.BorderStyle = 1
      objOLE.Object.SpecialEffect = 0

      Set objOLE = Nothing

      Set wsRec = Nothing
