I have a textbox on a continous subform.
The textbox is bound to the second column of an invisible combobox to display
the field from the related table.
I am using this code as source for the textbox: =cboUsager_temps.Column(1)
When I select a record on the main form, the textbox flickers endlessly. Does
anyone know what's going on ?
I would like to bring some more information.
After some testing I discovered that this was in fact due to another textbox
having a conditionnal formatting (making the background of the textbox green
if field value = true).

If you name your textboxes consecutively (textbox1, ..., textbox15), it makes
life a little easier:

I'm having a problem when I take a chart from Excel and past it into Word.
I use Paste Special - Picture because otherwise it will embed the whole Excel
file into the Word document.
My problem is that my textboxes get re-arranged somehow through the pasting
process. The wrapping is different and I end up with a bunch of white space
at the bottom of the box. Does anyone know why this happens and if there's
anything I can do to fix it?

I have a userform whose main component is a TextBox. It is locked as the
user is only permitted to read not edit the data there - that is done in the
main spreadsheet and the userform is modeless. The TextBox has a vertical
scroll bar to permit the user to navigate around its contents. The user
will not normally place the focus on the Textbox contents itself but just
use the scrollbar..
The data in the textbox is updated programattically (using vba). When this
happens the box contents scroll back to the top - I do not want this to
happen. I want the scroll position to remain as th...Textbox size changes on deletion of rows
I've created a textbox (using the Drawing Toolbar).
The textbox extends downward and actually to the right-hand side of 15 rows
I run a macro that deletes 5 or 6 rows and my textbox shrinks because of the
deleted rows; how can I prevent this from happening?
Set the properties of the text box so it doesn't size with the cells:
Select the text box
Choose Format>Text Box
Select the Properties tab
Select Move but don't size with cells
(or -- Don't move or size with cells)

I have a combobox cboOperationID and textbox txtOperationDesc in a continuous
form. User chooses an operationID in the combobox and textbox automatically
displays the description of that operationID using
Me.txtOperationDesc.Value = Me.cboOperationID.Column(1)
in the afterupdate event of cboOperationID
My problem is whenever i move to the next entry in my continuous form and
chooses another operationID from the combobox, the description in the
txtOperationDesc from the first entry also changes to that of the 2nd entry.

I added a Textbox to a Word 2007 document by going

then Legacy Tools->Text box Field. The MultiLine

are default. The textbox is of size so that it can take some
10 rows of lines. Is there a feature I can choose/set so that
when more than 10 rows of lines are entered the text box

You need to clarify. I have not heard of a text box containing a list.
Typically users want to sort the records in a report.
I can't make any sense of your question or what a typical value in the text

You could save in a worksheet cell (if the file is to be saved), in a

news:B6428CBB-6EB7-44...Conditional display of textbox on form
I only want a textbox to display if the control source value is not null or
not an empty string.
I set the text box can shrink property to true and then test the value in
the form load event.
If the value is NULL or empty the text box does not display but there is an
unsightly gap where it should display.
The display mode is continuous forms so I want to recover the space where
the box would have displayed.
Can this be done? If so how?

Is there a way, when you tab into a textbox, to move the cursor to the end of
the line, such that the text in the box is not highlighted.
I've experimented w/ selstart but w/out success.
AFAIK, it's not possible to force the cursor position to the end of the
text, but you can stop it from selecting the text. Look at the
..EnterFieldBehavior property of the TextBox. If you set this property to
fmEnterFieldBehaviorRecallSelection, it will set the cursor to the same

...how to make that the subform can grow without running over the textboxes at the bottom of the mainform.
I have mainform that contains textboxes then subform datasheet beneath
and after that there is a textboxes again.
The problem is when the mainform grows it runs over the textboxes that
at the button of the main form.
I need to know how to make that the subform can grow without running
over the textboxes at the bottom of the mainform.
Set the Can Grow attribute for the detail section, assuming that's
where the various controls are located.
