Hi EE
I am playing with developing a simple Monthly scheduler the text box for each day is
Width 3cm and Height is 2cm. Is there a way via vba when clicking on a text box it can expand to a given size. I would like  to click on a given day, box opens up then enter text for that day when exit the box shrinks back to original size. Any help appreciated

You could use this code:
 
Dim sLastOne As String
Const cmTwips As Integer = 567

Private Sub ExpandMe()
    'expand textbox
    With Me.ActiveControl
        .Width = 5 * cmTwips
        .Height = 4 * cmTwips
        sLastOne = Me.ActiveControl.name
    End With
End Sub

Private Sub RestoreMe()
    'restore textbox
    If sLastOne <> "" Then
        Me.Controls(sLastOne).Width = 3 * cmTwips
        Me.Controls(sLastOne).Height = 1 * cmTwips
    End If
End Sub

Private Sub Detail_Click()
    RestoreMe
End Sub

Private Sub tDay1_GotFocus()
    ExpandMe
End Sub
Private Sub tDay2_GotFocus()
    ExpandMe
End Sub
Private Sub tDay3_GotFocus()
    ExpandMe
End Sub

Private Sub tDay1_LostFocus()
    RestoreMe
End Sub
Private Sub tDay2_LostFocus()
    RestoreMe
End Sub
Private Sub tDay3_LostFocus()
    RestoreMe
End Sub

Here's a 30 day version.  To change the size of the large text box just change the constants largeWidthCm and largeHeightCm.
