I have 2 arrays - one holding a "beginning" 9 digit number, the other holding an ending 9 digit number.  When the user hits ENTER or TAB, I would like the first 7 digits from the beginning number to appear in the ending number box.  I can make the code work if I use individual textboxes but since this is an array, it's a bit different.  How do I determine the item number of my current control in the array?  What I would like is this:

Beginning                      Ending
123456789 - HIT TAB OR ENTER - 1234567
998879988 - HIT TAB OR ENTER - 9988799

I don't understand. Do you have a control array, a numeric array, or both? If you have a control array, the index of the control will be given to you in the event parameters, eg Text1_LostFocus(Index As Integer).

Can you make a small list of what element are on the screen, what kind of array you have, and where the data is actually coming from. That will help quite a bit...

I have 2 arrays of textboxes; array 1 = BEGINNINGIDs, array 2 = ENDINGIDs.  The user keys a "beginning id" which is a 9 digit number then hits TAB or ENTER (which takes them to the ending id box).  After entering the beginning id, when the user hits ENTER or TAB, I would like the first 7 digits from the beginning id to appear in the ending id box.

Create 2 textboxes with the same name (Text1)
Create another 2 textboxes with the same name (Text2)

Add the following code to your application:

Private Sub Text2_GotFocus(Index As Integer)
    Text2(Index).Text = Left(Text1(Index).Text, 7)
End Sub

Thank you, CJ!  I thought that I had to explicitly reference the index...I didn't realize that just using INDEX was sufficient!
