excel 2010 vba

userform
textbox

What I need:

if the textbox contains more than  1 token the code works fine:
example:
claw hammer 16    becomes
%claw%hammer%16%

Problem:
If the textbox contains only one word:
HAMMER

it only becomes:
hammer%

I need:
%hammer%

Thanks

Hi,

Why not, simply...

MsgBox "%" & Replace(Trim$(UserForm2.TextBox33), " ", "%") & "%", vbCritical

or

MsgBox "%" & Join(Split(UserForm2.TextBox33, " "), "%") & "%", vbCritical

?

BFN,

fp.
