VBA code help for multiplying values

Hello all,

I need help with two sets of code as I am undecided which option to go with yet.

First code - If I enter a value into text box "txt_cb_two_enter" then the text box "text_cb_two_result" displays the value from "txt_cb_two_enter" mutiplied by 500.  So 1 is entered in the first box and 500 is displayed in the second box.

Second code - If I enter a value into text box "txt_cb_two" then the value is mutiplied by 500 and the result is displayed in the same text box but as currency.  So 1 is entered in the box and £500 is displayed.

Thanks in advance.

Chris

use the afterupdate event of  "txt_cb_two"

private sub txt_cb_two_afterupdate

me.txt_cb_two.value=me.txt_cb_two * 500

end sub

Chris,

Try this one:

Private Sub txt_cb_two_enter_AfterUpdate()
Me.txt_cb_two_result = Me.txt_cb_two_enter.Value * 500
End Sub

no need to use two textboxes, one will do.

Yeah thanks both for your input!

I haven't decided on my final approach for the job in hand yet capricorn1.  

My users may want to go with two boxes so they can see the initial value they have entered.  If I was to go with a single box approach what would the code be to change the field type to currency from a number?

Regards
