I'm working with a Userform with a few textrboxes on it. I used the Properties field to lock each textbox, however I want a code to unlock the text box when the value in cell B3 is equaled to 1.

Help please.....

Thanks.

You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

In the Workbook_open event, you can lock the textbox:
Code:
Public Sub Workbook_Open()
    UserForm1.TextBox1.Locked = True
    UserForm1.Show 0
End Sub

And in the sheet's _Change() event (you didn't specify which sheet):
Code:
Public Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    If Application.Intersect(Target, [b3]) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
    If [b3].Value = 1 Then
        UserForm1.TextBox1.Locked = False
    Else
        UserForm1.TextBox1.Locked = True
End Sub

How's that work for ya? Hope that helps!
