I have another one of those questions that I am sure is very easy but I have not been able to find an answer.
I have a combo box (drop down list) the rowsource is an array. All works well with it. I would like the first item to show in the box before the user clicks the down arrow, I know it is possible because everyone else seems to do it......but I have not figured out how.
I realize that I can make the first item in the array say "Select Item"..but how do I get it to show in the box?

I knew it had to be simple. I have read and looked and was not able to find that answer anywhere. It must be one of those things that everyone already knows. When I used 2.0 thru 2.6 I never used a form. Everything was programs and @ say statements. This is really like starting all over again.
This forum has been a lifesaver.
Why would they not allow this listindex property to be set at design time?
