Some Controls On UserForm Retains Data - How Do I Stop This??

Posted by Angie Dickinson on January 22, 2002 3:51 AM


I have 2 combo boxes on my form along with other controls. When I click on Add Record to update the worksheet, I get a message box asking if I want to add another record. When I click on Yes, the userform reappears with all the other controls on the form blank, except for the 2 combo boxes, these still have the data from the previous transaction. Is there any way I can get around this?

Not sure what you mean by "get around this." If you want to "clear" the combo boxes the command is MyComboBox.Clear.

have fun

Hi Bariloche,

I used the command as you suggested, but it is not working. I was wondering if this has anything to do with the fact that the data from combobox1 & 2 goes to textbox1 which is used to update the worksheet. I am just a beginner so I am sort of feeling my way through this.

Check this code and see if there is anything that can be added to help

If vbYes Then
Payno.text = ""
Bookno.text = ""
Textbox1.text =combobox1.value & comboxbox2.value
Textbox2.text =""



End If
