When you add a ListBox control to a UserForm, the width of the ListBox may change unexpectedly.


The width of a ListBox control may change unexpectedly if both of the following conditions are true:

  • You add ListBox control that has multiple columns. -and-

  • You set the width of the first column in the ListBox to zero (0).


To prevent the ListBox from being resized, use a value greater than zero for the width of the first column in a multicolumn ListBox control.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. This problem no longer occurs in Microsoft Excel 2000.


For more information about the ListBox control, click the Office Assistant in the Visual Basic Editor, type Listbox,click Search, and then click to view "ListBox Control."

NOTE: If the Assistant is hidden, click the Office Assistant button on the Standard toolbar. If Microsoft Help is not installed on your computer, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
