  1. How would I go about referencing this combo box in a formula once it is created in the toolbar?

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Hi i think you would create a function that returns the value of the combo box, and then refer to that function in the excel formula. i have not done this before so can only offer some pseudo code:

    VBA function:
    function ComboValue()
    ComboValue =
    end function

    Excel formula:
    =ComboValue()
