Text1.Text = Left(Text1, Len(Text1) - 1)
End Sub

text.seltext in the textbox will give you the position in the textbox that is currently selected you can then create a string pulling that one out if you need details to accomplish let me know, sorry i was going to put in last q but it was closed

Give the TextBox Focus and then send a BackSpace.  Whatever was before the cursor will be erased...
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Text1.SetFocus
    SendKeys "{BACKSPACE}"
End Sub

Open in new window

a = Me.Text
b = Mid(Me.Text.Text, 1, Me.Text.SelStart) & Mid(Me.Text.Text, Me.Text.SelStart + 2)
this assumes cursor in front of letter to eliminate
