When you scroll through a list box on a worksheet or a UserForm, you may not be able to scroll to the last item in the list.


This behavior can occur if the following conditions are true:
  • The height of the list box is too small to display the entire list at one time.

  • The last item in the list is not displayed; for example, the last item is not displayed if you scroll to the top of the list.

  • You run a macro to change the height of the list box while the last item in the list is not displayed.

For more information about the support options that are available and about how to contact Microsoft, visit the following Microsoft Web site:http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=fh;EN-US;CNTACTMS To work around this problem, use either of the following methods:
  • Scroll to the last item in the list box before you run a macro that increases the height of the list box.

  • If you want to run a macro that changes the height of the list box, change the height of the list box by setting it to a value instead of calculating the height in an operation.

    The following line of sample code fails:
    ListBox1.Height = ListBox1.Height + 10
    However, the following line of sample code works correctly:
    ListBox1.Height = 80


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Excel 2000.
