I am using a vba userform to display information that already exists on an excel worksheet entitled "Customer Info". Currently, I am having a very hard time trying to get the userform to display any kind of number formatting. I was using the control source to display the information on the userform but had problems. So then, I tried to code the data in VBA initializing, but still could not get it to work.

Here is one example of my coding in the userform initializing stage.

Code:
TxtWeightLow.text = Sheets("customerinfo").Range("b95").Text

Is there another line I would need to add to format the text box. (the cell on the spreadsheet is already formatted)

I would like txtweightlow to read as a ($* #,##0.00_)

Easy bullets in Excel
If you have a numeric keypad, press Alt+7 on numeric keypad to type a bullet in Excel.
That code should display B95 in the textbox as it is formatted on the worksheet.

Have you removed the value in the ControlSource property?

Not really sure what's going on now. I took the control source, the value, and the text out of the properties menu and now I'm not returning a value in the text box.

But the code I provided should return the value exactly displayed in the worksheet. Is that what you are saying?
