Default Question on Combo Boxes

I am new to this forum, so if this question has been posted prior, I apologize.



I am using Word 2010 and am still new to learning about how to properly utilize all the features. I have been messing with combo boxes for drop-down listing of choices to fill letters that I write.

My question is this: are there any options for this kind of usage that has a multiple-choice selection feature?
If not, is there any plans to implement this feature in the future?
Also, is there any other way to make this happen aside from the combo box option?

Thanks.

The short answer to your question is no, however you could use an on exit macro to perform further tasks based on your selection. From your brief description a better approach would be to create a VBA userform in which you can make all your selections and write them to the document. You could use a list box to make multiple selections if you wished.

See http://www.gmayor.com/Userform.htm for the basics. You could then investigate http://www.gmayor.com/Userform_ComboBox.html and http://gregmaxey.com/word_tip_pages/..._userform.html
