    Formatting Text in Combo Boxes

    I am using Excel 2000 SR-1.
    I am using a Combo box in my spreadsheet. I want to know how to format the text in the drop down box. It appears about in 4 pt. size. Although the text in the reference cells are 16 pt.
    No where does it help when I right click the box. I have looked in the MS Knowledge base, Woody's Office 2000 book, and any other place I could think of.

    Thx in advance

    Right-click the combobox and select properties. In the property window you should be able to select font and font size.

    It might be because you are not in design mode.

    Show the control toolbox (view, Toolbars, Control Toolbbox), Then click on the button in that toolbox which has a set sqaure. You will then be able to right click on the control. select properties, and change font size etc.
