    Export To Excel Combobox, Pre-Populating the Combobox w/ Stored Data

    I have an Excel template file that I want to export Access data to, which should be populated with the correct values per record. I am assuming I would need to know the combobox name on the Excel form. Would anyone have experience with this and could you provide a code example.



    To make it shorter, I understand the underlying connection requirements and sql statements needed in code. I just don't fully comprehend the "how-to" I'll need to connect to the specific combobox and display the text stored in the database.

    I really appreciate the help!

    Doesn't Excel combobox reference a cell range as list source?

    Yes. Are you saying the query output should reference the exact cell in the "ListFillRange" (see picture)? I am struggling to connect all the dots. The form needs to keep the list intact so it can be altered after the output to the form. The purpose is to send for revision in future requests. Thanks June7, you're invaluable to this forum
