    Word ListBox - Selection Column 3 to Run the Macros

    Hi folks,

    I have a listbox in word on a userform.

    I would like to run a macro when an item is selected.

    This is a multicolumn listbox

    And the macro name is in Column 3.

    So each row has its own macro i would like to run




    How can this be achieved ive looked everywhere and not sure what im doing wrong

    ListBox1.List(RowIndex, ColumnIndex)

    Private Sub CommandButton1()
     
     Dim i as long
    oMacro as string
     
    If ListBox1.ListIndex = (i, 2) then 
    Call oMacro
    
    
     
     '----- Basic Code
    If ListBox1.ListIndex = 0 Then
    Call  Macro1
    End If
    If ListBox1.ListIndex = 1 Then
    Call Macro2
    End If
    End Sub
    Thank you for tips and advice
    Cheers for your help

    Thank you very much Greg,

    That worked very nicely indeed. I've been looking for this for a couple of days

    I have downloaded all your userforms and there is so much to learn

    I started with a basic array
    Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
    'Greg Array
    Dim myArray() As String
      Use Split function to return a zero based one dimensional array.
      myArray = Split("AL|AK|AZ|AR|CA|CO|CT|DE|DC|FL|" _
                 & |HI|ID|IL|IN|IA|KS|KY|LA|ME|MD|" _
                 & "MA|MI|MN|MS||MT|NE|NV|NH|NJ|NM|" _
                 & "NY|NC||OH|OK|ZOE|PA|RI|SC|SD|TN|" _
                 & "TX|UT|VT|VA|WA|WV|WI|WY", "|")
      Use .List method to populate listbox.
      ListBox1.List = myArray
    lbl_Exit:
      Exit Sub
    End Sub
    But then I got stuck running a macro, and a few hours later , I was troubled, so here I am

    But nicely solved, I forgot I only put one column up so the blueberries dissapeard
    but its solved now
    Have a great evening!
    Cheers for your help
