vba display listbox if cell is selected In order to easily enter data in the sheet, we added a listbox to the worksheet without using the userform and hid this listbox.

The listbox is filled with items on the other sheet (List sheet).
When any cell is selected in column A of main sheet (Data sheet), the listbox is displayed and the selected item or items from the listbox is entered into the cell. We have set the listbox multiselect property so that multiple listbox items can be selected and added to worksheet. excel vba listbox multiselect Me.ListBox1.MultiSelect = fmMultiSelectMulti

To enter data into cell according to listbox item selection, we added the following codes to the ListBox Change procedure : vba select listbox enter to cell

Private Sub ListBox1_Change()
Dim gir As String
    For i = 0 To Me.ListBox1.ListCount - 1
        If Me.ListBox1.Selected(i) = True Then
            gir = gir & Me.ListBox1.List(i) & " "
        End If
    Next i
    ActiveCell.Value = Trim(gir)
End Sub

To select a cell in a column other than column A will hide the listbox again.
