Please, can anyone help with the following problem?

I need to know how, and where, to declare a variable that will be used across many sheets and procedures within one workbook.

The workbook contains three sheets.
The first sheet has a login button on it.
The login button activates a form which contains two text boxes for the User ID and Password.
I want to keep the User ID in memory for use with actions performed by other buttons and forms.

Thanks,

Matt...

What is the shortcut key for Format Selection?
Ctrl+1 (the number one) will open the Format dialog for whatever is selected.

Declare the variable using Public rather than Dim, in the Declarations section of a Public module.
