Default change control listbox results to numbers

I have a listbox (activex control) in an excel worksheet, it returns a "text" value to the linked cell, when the item is selected from the list.

Since I want to do math with the result in the linked cell, how can I use vba to return a corresonding numeric value, instead of the text value.

I know the listbox created from the "forms" menu, returns a number, but I like the versatility of the activex control better. I have tried to research this question for many days now, and can't find a reference to this problem.

Has anyone else tried this? Any help is humbly appreciated.

Better to ask in the excel.programming newsgroup. But use the .ListIndex
attribute of the listbox + 1

Sorry, I thought I had posted in excel. Thanks for the answer, how would I go about the same operation (below) with a group of comboboxes?

In the same way. The .ListIndex attribute is the same for both listboxes
and comboboxes.

I think I'm starting to make use of it, thanks. One more question?

How do I sum the values (of the selected items ) from 2 different comboboxes in a single linked cell? All the selected items will have a value of 1, so it's just 1+1+1 etc. Thank you for your time.

I'm sorry, I still haven't learned how to make this work yet.

I've researched the conventions, used some examples to put the correct code in the worksheets, I still need just a little hand holding? I may need to have consulting services.

Send what you have so far to me at and I will take a look and
let you know what needs to be done. If it's as minor as I think it is then
probably there would be no charge at all.
