Save combobox value for future need

0

Hi all

I have 3 dependant comboboxes:

cmb_NumberOfTeams is on Userform_Setting.

cmb_ChosenTeam and cmb_Team are on Userform_Badge.

I'm trying to get the value of cmb_NumberOfTeams each time I launch Userfom_Settings so that I get the last value of Userform_Badge.

Below is the code that link the comboboxes.

Private Sub cmb_NumberOfTeams_Change()

    If Me.cmb_NumberOfTeams = 1 Then

        Me.cmb_ChosenTeam.List = Array("#1")

        Me.cmb_Team.List = Array("#1")

    ElseIf Me.cmb_NumberOfTeams.Value = 2 Then

        Me.cmb_ChosenTeam.List = Array("All", "#1", "#2")

        Me.cmb_Team.List = Array("#1", "#2")

    ElseIf Me.cmb_NumberOfTeams.Value = 3 Then

        Me.cmb_ChosenTeam.List = Array("All", "#1", "#2", "#3")

        Me.cmb_Team.List = Array("#1", "#2", "#3")

    ElseIf Me.cmb_NumberOfTeams.Value = 4 Then

        Me.cmb_ChosenTeam.List = Array("All", "#1", "#2", "#3", "#4")

        Me.cmb_Team.List = Array("#1", "#2", "#3", "#4")

   ElseIf Me.cmb_NumberOfTeams.Value = 5 Then

        Me.cmb_ChosenTeam.List = Array("All", "#1", "#2", "#3", "#4", "#5")

        Me.cmb_Team.List = Array("#1", "#2", "#3", "#4", "#5")

    ElseIf Me.cmb_NumberOfTeams.Value = 6 Then

        Me.cmb_ChosenTeam.List = Array("All", "#1", "#2", "#3", "#4", "#5", "#6")

        Me.cmb_Team.List = Array("#1", "#2", "#3", "#4", "#5", "#6")

    End If

End Sub

Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated

In the attached file I've recreated*  your situation (nearly) with those Comboxes on a single UserForm. There's then a hidden sheet (VBA code name Sheet2) so that you can restore chosen values, even after a save.

I've added this to the end of your macro...

ElseIf Me.cmb_NumberOfTeams.Value = 6 Then

        Me.cmb_ChosenTeam.List = Array("All", "#1", "#2", "#3", "#4", "#5", "#6")

        Me.cmb_Team.List = Array("#1", "#2", "#3", "#4", "#5", "#6")

    End If

'store the changed value
Sheet2.Range("B1").Value = cmb_NumberOfTeams.Value


End Sub

When the form is launched (by clicking the blue button on Sheet1), the bold bit of this new  code restores that value:

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()

' set Number of teams list
Me.cmb_NumberOfTeams.List = Array(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
' restore last value
Me.cmb_NumberOfTeams = Sheet2.Range("B1").Value

End Sub

You just need to do similar for the ChosenTeam and Team selections.

Hope this helps.

* When you next ask a question, please remember to use CODE tags (so the code displays neatly in the question) and to attach a representative Excel file with macro, userforms and test data- that saves us recreating your problem.
