Select the textbox, goto the formula bar and enter =D3.

That assumes it's a textbox 'shape'.

If it's an ActiveX textbox right click it, select Properties and set the LinkedCell property to D3.

If the text in the textbox will always start with "Name: " (that's Name: followed by a space) then

In VBA do this


Private Sub TextBox1_Change()
Range("D3").Value = Split(TextBox1.Text, ": ")(1)
End Sub

In the workbook it's an ActiveX textbox, not a Forms texbox, so what's been posted won't work.

What exactly do you want to appear where and when?

If you want the value typed in D3 to appear in the textbox you can set the textbox's LinkedCell property to D3.

That will only put what's in D3 in the textbox, it won't add any sort of prefix.

I believe he wants the name that's typed in the textbox to appear in D3. eg if "Name: Marty" is in the textbox then D3 should be 'Marty'.

Guys, thank you very much for you suggestions, they were a great help.

The code that worked for me

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Range("H10").Value = TextBox1.Text
End Sub
