excel 2010 vba

I have 2 userforms  both modeless.
Userform1
Userform2

I open useform1
Then userform2
 
and once I'm done with userform2
I want to move the focus back to userform1


Problem.  I have Multipage object on Userform1. ( 8 tabs  )

First I need to make sure when I move back to the Useform1 I go to the right place.

So
if on Useform1 ,  Multipage (2) was the current tab,   I want to go to listbox2
that has a currently selected Item ?




Thanks

In userform2 Terminate event put code that selects userform1.multipage(2) or userform1.ListBox2.Setfocus

ok..that sounds simple enough..

But,  would i not have to loop through the listbox and see which one has the item selected to back to that item ?

i.e. If i had 20 items in the listbox and 17 was selected..i need to go back to that line in the listbox...

Thanks

Listbox1.Listindex will tell you which one is selected, if you just need to know the value you can do Listbox1.Text

Martinliss,

these are the actual values Im using:
Private Sub UserForm_QueryClose(Cancel As Integer, CloseMode As Integer)
frmResultAll.MultiPage1.SetFocus
frmResultAll.MultiPage1.Value = 0
frmResultAll.ListBox1.SetFocus
Unload UserForm1
end sub


The focus is still on the sheet1...

The userform
frmResultAll  does not get the focus..?
