You can use the following function to fill a combobox

Sub FillCombo()

    With Combo1
        .AddItem ("Item 1")
        .AddItem ("Item 2")
        .AddItem ("Item 3")
        .AddItem ("Item 4")
        .AddItem ("Item 5")
        .AddItem ("Item 6")
    End With

End Sub

You can call this function wherever you want to fill the combobox. For example call this in the Page_load event.

Pls Note by default a combo box (combination of textbox and listbox) has a dropdownlist and the textarea to type the text. This means the user can type something instead of selecting the items in the dropdownlist. If you want to prevent the user from typing something in the combobox and should be able to select something only from the dropdownlist then you need to set the Style property of the combobox to (2 - dropdownlist)



>For example call this in the Page_load event.

Ahh, that would be Form_Load in VB 6.0

and brieghz23, the style show in your graphic is a style of 1

Good Luck
