I have a userform with 11 TextBoxes for users to enter in various downtime categories in minutes (integer value). They are tbD1, tbD2, ..., tbD11

What I want to do is loop through the inputs to ensure that they entered a value in a certain range. Here is what I have so far:

Code:
    Dim DTsum As Integer 'sum of all entered downtime
    Dim ShiftLength As Integer 'max shift length
    DTsum = 0
    ShiftLength = Sheet3.Range("D2").Value
    
    'Check that the downtime doesn't exceed the maximum possible shift length
    For i = 1 To 11
        DTsum = DTsum + Me.tbD(i)
        If Me.tbD(i) > ShiftLength Or Me.tbD(i) < 0 Or DTsum > ShiftLength Then
            MsgBox ("Please ensure that the entered downtime doesn't exceed the maximum shift length.")
        End If
    Next i

"Me.tbD(i)" is what gives me an error. I am not sure if there is any other syntax that I can use to loop through these variables?

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I know this is a little primitive but as a noob what i would do would be to check each textbox individually....as you only have 11. That is if you are in a hurry. And your welcome.
