Default Multiple-selection drop-down in Word

Greetings All,

Need your expertise please. I am fairly new to VBA so please bear with me any growing pains if I ask too many questions. I am attempting to create a drop-down in one of the columns in a table form I created. I would like to allow the user to select multiple values, then on exit to populate that row/column where the drop-down exist. Similar to what was discussed below and didn't want to add-on to someone else's thread so I figure I would start my own.

https://www.msofficeforums.com/word-...down-list.html

Could someone please assist me how to go about doing so please. We are using Word 2016.



Thank you in advance for your assistance!!

It is not clear whether you are working in a vba userform or using Content Controls on the page.

In general, dropdowns don't allow multi-select. You need to use a listbox in order to enable multi-select. You could use a dropdown multiple times to populate a secondary container but it won't hold multiple selections by itself.

In which case it is either a listbox or a series of option buttons to get multi-select functionality on a userform.
