Formatting a Textbox

In an XL worksheet I have an assortment of values, both text and numeric...after a transfer of values occursand  a User Form is opened, certain of the UserForm fields are automatically filled in via an assortment of VBA routines...so far so good...

Here's my dilema...let's say in the first workbook, Sheet 1, cell A1, I have the value '07'...it successfully gets transfered to another workbook,Sheet2,  cell B1, as '07'...when the UserForm opens and fields are auto-updated, the value for the field is 7...i.e., NO leading 0 (zero)...I need the '07' rather than the '7' since a unique ID number is generated from this piece of info...Thoughts???

Thanks,
Ron

You need to treat "07" as a string, VB will automatically cut any front leading zeros unless its treated as a string. Maybe some of your code would help. If your using variableschange the integers or longs to strings, or however your transfering from the sheet to the form cast or extract the value as a string.

You stirred the proverbial "creative juices"...

I think my problem was breaking down the string (ddmmyyyy) from Ws1 into pieces into Ws2 (dd) , (mm), (yyyy) and then trying to refer...

here's what I came up with and seems to work:

Private Sub TextBox3_Change()
Dim Ws34 As Worksheet
Dim month As String
Set Ws34 = Sheets("Random")
month = Mid(Ws34.Cells(7, 7).Value, 3, 2)
TextBox3.Value = month
End Sub

Thanks for the "push"...
