How do I clear the Excel VBA controls on my user form in one hit ?

Hi Experts,

I have a user form with a number of controls including buttons.
One of the buttons is a CLEAR button which will clear each of the text boxes of any data. It currently does this as follows:

   coClientName = ""
   teClientAddress1 = ""
   teClientAddress2 = ""
   teClientAddress3 = ""
   teClientTown = ""
   teClientPostcode = ""

....and so on for the whole form.

My question is : how can I do this for the whole form in one line of code, rather than clear each control individually ?

I do not belive that you can use a single line to clear all controls.
This would be because not all controls can be cleared.
The best I can think of is to clear all of a type by cycling all controls on the form.
This way you don't have to write the clear code for each control:

Dim ctl As Control
For Each ctl In Me.Controls
    If TypeName(ctl) = "ComboBox" Or TypeName(ctl) = "TextBox" Then
        ctl.Value = ""
    End If
Next ctl
