Try this:

Private Sub Text1_GotFocus()
  ' Select all text
  Text1.SelStart = 0
  Text1.SelLength = Len(Text1.Text)
End Sub

I do not see how your code is any different than the other comments.  If the question has already been answered as a comment, the questioner can accept a comment as answer.  Since your "answer" is not unique, you have the option to "withdraw" your proposed answer.

Friends. Skip99 and Erick37. Both of u gave correct answers but correct me if i am wrong. The set focus should come last in the line of coding.Right?

Like This:

Text1.SelStart = 0
Text1.SelLength = Len(Text1.Text)
Text1.Setfocus

csindorf stated that he already set focus back to the box, so all that was left was to select the string


text.sellength = len(text.text)
