I have a text box where the user picks a number between 2 and 12, They click a button and then a list of multiplication tables appear related to the number they choose, e.g. pick number 2 and a list of tables from 2*2 up to 2*12 appear like this:

2*2 = 4
2*3 = 6
2*4 = 8

And so on....

I was going to do it like this:

Code:
Dim array_table(2 To 12) As String
Dim var_num As Integer


array_table(2) = "2*2 = 4 2*3 = 6..."
array_table(3) = "3*2 = 6..."
 
var_num = Val(txt_tbl)
lbl_tables.Caption = array_table(var_num)

But it seems wrong; there must be a simpler way?

Thanks.

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

Hi,

how about

Code:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim iValue As Integer
Dim I As Integer
Dim sCaption As String

iValue = Val(TextBox1.Text)
If iValue = 0 Then
    MsgBox "Invalid value"
    Exit Sub
End If

sCaption = ""
For I = 1 To 12
    sCaption = sCaption & _
                iValue & " * " & I & " = " & I * iValue & vbCrLf
Next I
Label1.Caption = sCaption
End Sub
