I'm trying to find some code which when exiting a VBA text box will check its contents are in the right format I.e time or %. What would the code be to throw up a stop message if incorrect?

Why do you care what the format is in if it's a textbox? Example, whether someone enters
.06
or
6%
it is still the same thing.

What you do with the entry afterwards is really what matters.

Expecting a user to input a text with a format you want will only lead to disappointment; users will do everything except what you want them to.

What you should care about is if they enter the kind of base data you want, example, a number within a range of numbers, or whatever text you have in mind.
