With the help of various tutorials in this form I am trying to combine input data from several different input types into an outlook appointment item. With your assistance I have been able to include data from both message boxes and list boxes. How do you also include multiple selections from a multi select list box? I have been able to capture the selections in an array and display them in a message box. Though have not been able to copy the array data into the appointment subject. I have attached both the custom form code, and the macro code. I am at the point where I am unable to identify where to go from here. As always, any assistance is greatly appreciated. I am not sure if I am way off on this or close to a solution.

Not sure how to apply this as you are stating. I am joining the array and displaying as message. I need the join to be included in the subject with data from other sources. Below is code for the Form. I bolded the lst reference also bolded line from macro code adding data to subject. How do I reference the array in the macro code? I separated my form and macro code in original post. . With the code below array I get type mismatch error. Thanks again for your continued support. Appreciate all the feedback.

Here is my line from macro

If objContact.CompanyName <> "" Then
objAppt.Subject = objContact.CompanyName & ", - INSP/PM - ," & inputdata & " , " & strBody1 & strBody2 & strBody3 & inputdata1 & "," & strBody

You do have the values of the array in the lstNo4 variable, don´t you? Just add it to the subject as you already do with the other variables.
