Excel Facts

Format cells as time
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+2 to format cells as time. (Shift 2 is the @ sign).

Maybe:-
Code:
Private Sub TextBox1_KeyDown(ByVal KeyCode As MSForms.ReturnInteger, ByVal Shift As Integer)
  If KeyCode = 13 Then MsgBox TextBox1.Text
End Sub
This is for an ActiveX textbox - I can't seem to place a Form textbox on my worksheet at the moment.
