This might be an easy one.

I am using a userform that I want to grab a specific cell text value from.  How would I tell Excel to grab the text value of WorkBook1, Sheet2 and cell b4?  Needs to be formatted as text.

Please advise and thanks. -R-

In Visual Basic Editor, create label1 on your userform and doubleclick the userform. The editor should appear so you can insert the following method.

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
    Label1.Caption = Sheet2.Range("B4").Value
End Sub

Open in new window


When the form is activated this method will fire and the value in B4 is used as text in the label. If you are using a textbox you should replace Label1.Caption with TextBox1.Text.

If you would like to trigger the transfer of text on something else then the activation of the userform, you can select different events from the dropdown list in the upper right corner when editing code.

To capture a cell value from another open workbook and format it as a Social Security number, you might do it like this:
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
TextBox1.Value = Format(Workbooks("YTD-TotalsQ28170943.xlsm").Worksheets("6-Apr-2013").Range("C15").Value, "000-00-0000")
End Sub

Open in new window
