Using the "Right" function correctly

I have written the following code and its not working:

textbox 1:  txtVin    ~ This is where the values are written
textbox 2:  txtUnitDescription   ~ This is where the "right" code will be placing the last 4 of the vin number.

Sub LastVinNo()
    Dim vin As String
    vin = Right(txtVin, 4)
    txtUnitDescription = vin
End Sub

I have placed this in a macro and within the code of the form itself - neither are working.
How do I write the actual "Right" function on excel vba correctly?

Try this.

Sub LastVinNo()
    txtUnitDescription.Text = Right(txtVin.Text, 4)
End Sub

Thank you so much Martin, this did it!

Technically the ".Text" parts of the code are not necessary because 'Text' is the default property of a textbox, but I usually include it for self-documenting purposes. In any case you’re welcome and I’m glad I was able to help.
