OK,...I've added a text box from the controls toolbox and after I save the form,..it does nothing. It doesn't allow for any text to be entered and I set the max to be 40 characters. Is there a macro I need to provide to make it simply allow text to be entered in it?

Also I would love to have the check box above it activate it if it is checked. Possible?

How to change case of text in Excel?
Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney

Any reason why you're using the controls text box instead of the drawing tools textbox?

So that I can have it become active as soon as the previous check box is checked. Assumed I would need VBA controls to do this.
