Default Using a Drop Down list to populate a cell with multiple choices, Word 2010

Hello Folks

I'm trying to develop a word document (Word 2010) that utilises the drop box selections to populate a cell.



I want to be able to continue to populate that cell every time I make a selection from my drop down box. Is this possible???

I've included an image that may help to explain myself a little clearer.

Do you want to add the selection to the last line or the first line?
Do you want to add the same selection twice? eg Harness; Tripod; Harness; Stand by person
Have you considered a series of check boxes instead? The current example you showed would continue to show the last selection after you were finished and that wouldn't be very clever.

This is not a minor project and would be best accomplished with a UserForm, IMO.
