This is what I have:

If Len(TextBox1.Value) = 10 Then
format(TextBox1.Value,"(###) ###-####")
End If

I get the following error:

Compile error

Expected: =

Waterfall charts in Excel?
Office 365 customers have access to Waterfall charts since late 2016. They were added to Excel 2019.

Format is a function not a method, so you will need something like this: -
<pre>
With TextBox1
If Len(.Value) = 10 Then
.Value = Format(.Value, "(###) ###-####")
End If
</pre>

I hate to be a pest, but I guess I don't understand the difference. Will you enlighten me?

I figured it out. Basically, I can't just have it "do" what I want. I have to reassign the value. Thanks for your help.
