Hi,

I'm populating an Excel user form control (a textbox) from an array and then formatting the control in the next statement. Is there any way to combine these two operations into a single VBA statement. I've tried, unsuccessfully.

Me.Controls("teBasicFee" & i).Value = EnquiryItemsArray(x, 13)
Me.Controls("teBasicFee" & i).Value = Format(Me.Controls("teBasicFee" & i).Value, "#,##0.00")

Thanks
Toco

Well actually I was trying to reduce the code rather than increase it. I've got a large number of controls to format and I was wanting to cut down on the coding.

Yes, that's it thanks. I thought i'd tried that but I must have got the syntax wrong. Thanks for your quick reply.
