What action do you take that results in the error? Is it associated with clicking one of the buttons for example?

The run error occurs and thereafter Excel shuts down when I try to change the VBA code to reflect the worksheet column that I want as the txt box value on the Userform, i.e., as below from 6 to 12
        .txtPMthRev = Format(ws.Cells(lRw, 6), "#,##0.00")

Open in new window

        .txtPMthRev = Format(ws.Cells(lRw, 12), "#,##0.00")

Open in new window

Here's what I did. I changed .txtPMthRev = Format(ws.Cells(lRw, 6), "#,##0.00") to .txtPMthRev = Format(ws.Cells(lRw, 12), "#,##0.00") in the LoadBoxes sub. I then went into Visual Basic, selected the userform and pressed F5. I then get an error when Form_Initialized called LoadBoxes because of the #N/A cell L2, but after ignoring that I was able to click "Next Record" more than 30 times and did not have a problem. What did you do different if anything?
