Hi Guys,

I got code block! so please help/advise

I have a cell that does a vlookup from another sheet and paste the value, but sadly the source is text formatet and is shown correctly and like this 0889 but after the paste of value its only 889 is there a way to change this?

I have done the formatting and that works but when i need to use the cell for other formulas where it 0889 is need it only uses the 3 digits ( 889 )

so i need to insert a 0 in the front if there is only 3 digits..


please advise

ps. sorry if this is confusing.

here is the code:
Sub Get_regnr_byuser()

    Dim username As String
    Dim regnr As String
    Dim system As String
    
    On Error GoTo Errmsg:
    
    'username = Range("user")
    username = Worksheets("Admin").Range("user").Value
    system = Worksheets("Admin").Range("System").Value
    
    
If Left(username, 3) = "b37" Then

    ' FIT

    'Set myrange = Worksheets("Medarbejder_Liste").Range("E:G")
     Set myrange = Range("Medarbejder_Liste!E:G")

    regnr = Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(username, myrange, 3, False)

Else

    ' HITS
    
    'Set myrange = Worksheets("Medarbejder_Liste").Range("D:G")
    Set myrange = Range("Medarbejder_Liste!D:G")
      
    regnr = Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(username, myrange, 4, False)
    

End If
    
    Worksheets("Admin").Range("reg").Value = regnr
    'Worksheets("Admin").Range("reg").NumberFormat = "0####" 'This formats the cell
    
    If regnr = "" Then
        GoTo Errmsg
    End If
    
    Exit Sub
    
Errmsg:


    Call err_exit
    

End Sub

When referring to a cell containing the 3 digits use the TEXT function to make it 4 digits:

=TEXT(A2,"0000")

Thanks
