I created a user form in Excel to display help topics for an excel sheet I created. The help topics are contained in a text box on the user form. The user form is activated by a command button on the sheet. When activated and displayed the scroll bar on the text box will not appear until you click on the user form. Any ideas why this is occuring? I would like for the scroll bar to appear without having to click on form.

Any ideas? Would it be better to use something other than a text box?

Thanks!

Try adding something like
TextBox1.SetFocus
to the initalize event of the form.
