Hello Experts,

I have a UserForm, that will eventually become a "popup" window that is splashed on the screen when the user opens the Excel Workbook.

I have added a "Label" control onto my UserForm, and I would like it to display the result of this formula:

="Version - "&LOOKUP(90000000000,'Change Log'!A:A)&" (Jay Burke)"

I tried adding the formula right into the Label control, and it just shows the formula itself - not the result.  So either, I need to do something else? Or it's just not something that is supported?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Try

evaluate(="Version - "&LOOKUP(90000000000,'Change Log'!A:A)&" (Jay Burke)")

Nope, doesn't work.  It still just shows the formula.

You could set the caption to the value of the cell that has the formula.
Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
    Label1.Caption = Sheets(5).Range("C3").Value
End Sub

Open in new window

@ Graham,

Could you revise that formula to reference a named cell instead?

and to paraphrase Syed

Label1 = "Version - " & Evaluate("=LOOKUP(90000000000,'Macro'!A:A)") & " (Jay Burke)"

Just plug the name into the code
Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
    Label1.Caption = Sheets(5).Range("MyCell").Value
End Sub

Open in new window

I'm not having any luck...

Can someone post a workbook that has a userform, and a label control is looking at a specific cell for it's value?

Hopefully that will help me out.

@ GrahamSkan,

So weird, I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong.  Your version looked the same as mine - except I was referencing other names.

Anyhow, I copied and pasted yours - changed the names to this:

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
    'Label1.Caption = Sheets(5).Range("C3")
    lblVersion.Caption = Range("Version")
End Sub

Open in new window


On your example that was referencing the named cell, I was wondering why it still needed to reference the sheet name.  So on a hunch, I just removed it - and it's working perfectly.

Thank you very much for taking the time to help me with this!
