VBA updating text box label

VBA updating text box label

Anybody know the VBA to update a text box label?

RE: VBA updating text box label

Are those controls on a UserForm?
"text box label" - there is a text box and there is a label.
Text box has Text property, label has a Caption property.

txtMyTextBox.Text = "I am a Text Box"
lblMyLabel.Caption = "I am a label"

Have fun.

A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station.

RE: VBA updating text box label

If the label is attached to the text box then you can also
myTextBox.controls(0).caption = "Some Text"
Not really any easier but sometimes useful in generic code.
