ok
here goes


If Text1 = "red" or Text1 = "Green" or Text1 = "Blue" then
   Text2 = "Color"
End If

This wont work. I know it.:)

How can i do this using either Case or Else Statements?

a brief explanation of why it won't work and an example of both options would be appreciated...thanx in advance.

OK. I tested your code, and.... it does work! The only thing I can think of is the text being case sensitive, so if you enter "green" instead of "Green" that it wont work. In such a case you can match both sides of the formula using LCASE function, as in:

If LCase(Text1) = "red" Or LCase(Text1) = "green" Or LCase(Text1) = "blue" Then
   Text2 = "Color"
End If

I don't know exactly what you are trying to accomplish but if you always want the user to select a color you could use a combo box instead of a text box.  This would eliminate the need to check to see if a correct color has been entered.

Greetings from the pearl of the orient!(",)

Shauli is right from his code you can do it this way:

Select Case Text1.Text

Case Trim(Lcase("red")), Trim(Lcase("Green")),Trim(Lcase( "Blue"))
          Text2 = "Color"
      Case Else
           'do the other stuff
End Select

*** The trim is to take of all trailng characters in the textbox
***(eg.space)

***I hope this would help (",)
