dynamic searching a listbox using a textbox in Active X control

  • Hi,

    I have never used Active X controls within a worksheet so not sure if this is feasible or the best approach. I have attached a workbook that has a listbox with approx 3500+ that is populated using "ListFill" within the listbox properties. I was looking to find a way of dynamically using the text box to search the listbox, the textbox would need to be searching the materials which is couln C in the materials workbook. I am ok with the basics of VBA but not sure where to go with this

    Thanks Matt

  • Hi,

    If your objective is to have a Search Function with the AutoComplete feature ... the best alternative would be a ComboBox ...

    Just take a look at following explanation :

    Excel Data Validation Combo box Click
