Last Modified: 2012-08-13
This is Excel VBA
I have this piece of code I need to add

FormatCurrency to this line in the code
(TextBox2.Text = rng(.ListIndex + 1, 3)

What would be the proper syntax?

Any help would greatly be appreciated

With ComboBox1
        Set rng = Range(.RowSource)
        TextBox1.Text = rng(.ListIndex + 1, 2)
       (TextBox2.Text = rng(.ListIndex + 1, 3)        
     End With

In Excel VBA you can use CCur(value) to convert any value to a currency $#,###.## format.

Sorry,  I should have told you it is a UserForm.

Dim curOne As Currency
Dim curTwo As Currency

For i = LBound(ComboBox1.Count) To UBound(ComboBox1.Count - 1)

With ComboBox1
        Set rng = Range(.RowSource)
        curOne = Format(rng(.ListIndex + 1, i) , Currency)       '< --- here
        curTwo = Format(rng(.ListIndex + 1, i), Currency)        '< ---- and here
TextBox1.Text = curOne
TextBox2.Text = curTwo
End With


something like that maybe ? If not then just get rid of the for next loop and replace the i is above with the 2 and 3 you had originally

Hopefully this helps anyway ( With regards to the format function, here is a reference )


If you need more help post back
