How do I pass an argument to an Excel userform in VBA ?

Hi Experts,

I am building an application in Excel VBA and have a user form (ufOrdersForm) with a text box control which holds an invoice number.

When the user double-clicks the text box I want its value (an invoice number) to pass to another form (ufSalesForm) as follows......

Private Sub teInvoiceNo1_DblClick(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)

   Application.ScreenUpdating = False
   Unload Me
   ufSalesForm.Show
   Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

How do I pass the argument from the procedure above to the intended user form ?

Thanks in anticipation ?

Toco,
Here are two ways to pass the value:
1. Declare a variable as Public in a regular module. Put a value in that variable before unloading the first userform. The second userform (ufSalesForm) can then interrogate that variable.
2. Hide the first userform instead of unloading it. The second userform can then get the value from the first userform. When the second userform closes and returns control to the calling sub  teInvoiceNo1_DblClick, you can then unload the first userform.
