what is the syntax to sum textbox values? I have several textboxes that contain numeric values and when I use the syntax sum(txtbox1.value+txtbox2.value...) i am getting a concatenation not a sum.

thanks

Lock one reference in a formula
Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying

I came on here ready to ask the same question, no matter what you put in:

.value,
.text,
It still doesn't like it

Can any one help please?

Thanks

You can use:

Code:
Val(TextBox1) + Val(TextBox2)

HTH,

Hi gdspeare

I have the answer. Try typing in the code, which will insert it to where ever you need it to; here i have inserted it into label1:

label1 = Val(textbox1.value) + Val(textbox2.value)...etc

Instead of:

sum(txtbox1.value+txtbox2.value...)

Hope this helps
