Prefill Exel Userform with data from a worksheet

I have a spreadsheet with multiple customers. Customer information (i.e. name, address) is entered on the last worksheet. A userform is used to fill in an invoice worksheet. How can I prefill the userform with customer information when typing the customer name?

do you mean to populate the User Form with data from Worksheet?

if yes, then see if this is good for you?

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
    Dim r As Integer
    r = ActiveCell.row
    txtName.Text = ActiveSheet.Cells(r, 1)
    txtAddress.Text = ActiveSheet.Cells(r, 2)
End Sub

I would use a ComboBox to select the name. See the example - select a name, the rest of the data auto fills the TextBoxes.

The code is dynamic to you can add columns of data and TextBoxes as required, simply name the TextBoxes TextBox1, TextBox2, etc.

I would use the userForm_initialize() event instead of UserForm_Activate(), as the later may fire more than once (eventually overwriting data) wich may not be the behavior you expect.

Also, I do not advice using objects such as ActiveWorkbook, ActiveSheet, ActiveCell ect ... as these objects are user dependant and by nature chaotic. As a developper, you don't want to use chaotic objects (Ask yourself: What will happen if the user open or alt-tab to another workbook ?).
Prefer referencing precisely the objects you intend to use:
Dim wb As Excel.Workbook
Set wb = ThisWorkbook    '// ref the workbook holding VBA code

Dim ws As Excel.Worksheet
Set ws = wb.Worksheets(1)    '// ref the 1st worksheet of the workbook holding the code

Dim rng As Excel.Range
Set rng = ws.Range("B8")    '// ref the B8 cell of the 1st worksheet
