I have several text boxes on one form. How can I loop through each text box on the form and determine if there were any text changes. I only have 30 points to post.

Are the text boxes initially empty? or they already have some info in them?

Hi,

Initially copy the content of the TextBoxes' Value into their Tag (in Form_Load() event). When running the program, Check the Tag and Value, if different then this means user make some changes, or simply define use a variable (maybe True or False), make it True if the Change event of TextBoxes is fired.

Couldn't you just add code directly into the Change event procedure?  Or do you want to handle all of them in one block/batch rather than as they change?

YOu could always set a Form level flag: blnTXTChange as Boolean

then, for each TextBox on the form, it the Change Event:

Private Sub ANYTEXTBOX_Change() ' for EACH TEXTBOX
   blnTXTChange = True
End Sub

then you can test blnTXTChange and know if ANY Textbox had a change to its value.

Hope this is clear.
