Hello Experts,

I'd like a sub routine to copy the text from a predetermined textbox into a cell on the current worksheet. The various textboxes will be on a separate worksheet.

1) There are several potential textbox choices, the textbox name will come from cell "b2". i.e. "RadiantText" or "InsulationText"

2) The contents of the textbox needs to be pasted into cell "d3"

here you go

Sub TextBoxes()
Dim tbx As OLEObject
For Each tbx In ActiveSheet.OLEObjects

If TypeName(tbx.Object) = "TextBox" Then
For i = 1 To 1000
tbx.Object.Text = Cells(i, 1).Value
Next i
End If
Next
End Sub

Open in new window

Use this...

    Range("D3").Value = Worksheets("Sheet1").OLEObjects(Range("B2").Value).Object.Text

...where Sheet1 is the name of the worksheet containing your textboxes.
