Can I over the Yes, No and Cancel buttons with someother message that I can customize with ?

Is there any other control for this ?

Eg: the buttons should read "Manual "  "Both"  "Fax"

agree=msgbox("You are exiting this entry." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & "Press OK to save changes!", 3, "")

if (agree=vbYes) then
     confirmSignType = "M"
elseif (agree=vbNo) then
     confirmSignType = "F"
else confirmSignType = "B"
end if

The standard Msgbox will not do this - design your own form to do it, and open it modally

cquinn is correct.  The msgbox dialog does not allow you to feed it specific button captions; you can only use what it offers.
