Text box with part text already

Hi
Can anyone tell me how I can create txtboxs which already have text in it.
i.e
ATH-
I then want to add a number after the text and save this to a database.
i.e
ATH - 563892

Thanks
Andy

You can edit the .Text property at design time.  Select the textbox on the form, go into the property window and change the Text property to ATH-

You can also specify a .Text property when the form loads:
Option Explicit
Private Sub Form_Load()
    Text1.Text = "ATH-"
End Sub
 
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Text1.Text = "ATH-563892"
End Sub

Open in new window

Also you can concatenate text to existing text in the text box as you do with string variables,

Text.Text = "ATH-"


then later

Text1.Text = Text1.Text & "563892"
