How do I use the .font.color property on a message or input box? Or am I going about it in the wrong way? I just want 2 boxes, one that appears when the user makes an error, and another prior to a save, to have its text in red. I am using excel '97.

Thanks as always,

Mark

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

It sure would be nice to be able to do that, however, MsgBox and InputBox have no properties that you can define. Instead, you will have to create a UserForm that emulates what you are trying to do.
