Hi I need help with validation of multiple control words in the TextBox.
I have this simple code, which validates the user into the TextBox wrote:

If Slide5.TextBox4.Value = "Prague" Then
Slide5.TextBox4.BackColor = &HC0FFC0
Slide5.TextBox4.BackColor = &HC0C0FF
End If

I want the textbox the words "Prague" also recognized and inserted the word "Prag", ie. If the user writes, "Prague" or "Prag", then change the color: .BackColor = &HC0FFC0
Thanks in advance for your help.
