I'm wondering if I can set a datavalidation for the text fields in a form in Excel.  I want the first text field is always 9 charactors (Can't more and can't less than 9) and the second one is date field (must enter a valid date).

Hi,

pls try

Private Sub TextBox1_BeforeUpdate(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
If Len(TextBox1.Text) <> 9 Then
    MsgBox "Error"
    Cancel = True
Else
    ' Do what is to be done
End If
End Sub


Private Sub TextBox2_BeforeUpdate(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
If IsDate(TextBox2.Text) Then
     ' Do what is to be done
Else
    MsgBox "Error"
    Cancel = True
End If
End Sub

Open in new window
