I have set up my code to dynamically generate the id of a textbox on a grid that I have from a series of variables. But, once the textbox id is generated I cannot seem to use it. It's seen as a string and I have no idea how to tell it otherwise.

The code below generates the error:
Object required: '[string: "intended_textbox_id"]'


Set box = partA & partB & partC & "/" & partD
Set content = form2.box.Value
MsgBox content

What about (I'm not sure which one is right):
form2[box].Value
 
  -- or --
 
form2.Controls[box].Value
 
  -- or --
 
form2.Items[box].Value
