When I have an Input Box, And press Cancel The Program Crashes, I would like to write an If then Statement to Stop this crashing, So when user clicks on Cancel it doesn't crash but Ends the running program or exits.

Hi infinite loop

HERE is a sample
Put in a command button and see how it works . U will see that if the user presses cancel myvalue is given "" (null) . So then the sample myvalue = "" is then executed . You can also maybe out in there instead of the message box - exit sub - which cancels the subroutine


Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim Message, Title, Default, MyValue
Message = "Enter a value between 1 and 3"   ' Set prompt.
Title = "InputBox Demo" ' Set title.
Default = "1"   ' Set default.
' Display message, title, and default value.
MyValue = InputBox(Message, Title, Default)

If MyValue = "" Then
    MsgBox "Cancel"
ElseIf MyValue = 1 Then
   MsgBox "1"
Else
MsgBox "Cancel"
End If


This works
adjust it to use it in your app
If you get stuck Mail me the piece of cose at clazar@softnet.co.za and i will look at it quickly

Cheers mate

Or what you can do is trap the error that vb is sending u .
What is the error vb sends you when you hit the cancel button ?
