    For Each Sh In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
    Me.cbSheet.AddItem Sh.Name

    Next Sh
    End
    Dim i As Long, c As Long
    Dim SheetArray() As String

    With ActiveSheet.ComboBoxSOP
    For i = 0 To .ListCount – 1
    If .Selected(i) Then
    ReDim Preserve SheetArray(c)
    SheetArray(c) = .List(i)
