    ComboBox from ControlToolbox (XP)

    I have a total of five ComboBoxes, four that I have copied from the first. If I click on ComboBox2 I see the word "ComboBox2" in the section (sorry I don't know the term for it) above column A where the range names are defined. However if I look at the formula bar I see:

    =EMBED("Forms.ComboBox 1","") for each of the four replicated ComboBoxes.

    Is this a sign of file corruption?

    Thanks,
    John

    No, that is normal. The text is actually <code>Forms.ComboBox.1</code> and this is not the name of the combo box, but the so-called ProgID of combo boxes from the Control Toolbox. You will see this string for all combo boxes. Similarly, if you create several option buttons (aka radio buttons) from the Control Toolbox, you'll see Forms.OptionButton.1 in the formula bar for each of them.
