How can I set up my combo boxes on the form i am building to open automatically when clicked on the field portion not just the arrow? I have been searching for a while and I can't seem to find any guidance.

What version of Excel are you using? How are you adding the ComboBox and is it ActiveX or Form Control? – CharlieRB Jul 25 '14 at 19:13
I am using Excel 2013 and primarily Form Controls – BenW301 Jul 28 '14 at 14:26

ComboBox1.Style = 2 was what i was looking for. I stumbled upon the answer when searching for something else. Unfortunately it isn't enabled by default and it doesn't appear that it's an option in the properties window (at least that i could find).

Use a "Form Control" Combobox not an ActiveX control. The form control version by default will drop-down when you click on the data portion.
