I have a TextBox that should only hold numeric values because there is a calculation eg(TextBox.Text = integer + integer) but if the user enters letters of course i get a type mismatch error because you cant add letters to numbers.

So i want some sort of error checking to check if letters have been enetered into the textbox?

cheers

one way is to restrict to only integers input

Private Sub Text1_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
    If KeyAscii < 48 Or KeyAscii > 57 Then
        KeyAscii = 0
    End If
End Sub

If you want only integers in your textbox you can also use the SetWindowLong API.  There is an example here:
