I have a number input box on a vba form for a telephone number. It works fine to input on a spreadsheet, but it removes the beginning zero e.g.
telephone number "01234 234234" is saved as ""1234 234234".

How can I keep the zero?

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.

It works thanks - simple really. I just hope that users don't mess around in the spreadsheet in the future and change it! Thanks

How exactly are you transferring the value to the worksheet?
