Hi,

I have about 300 rows and 12 columns of Data.

As a test, I created a text box to display certain items from a row.

Code:
    Sheets("qry_Template_Upload").Shapes("textbox 1").Visible = True
    Sheets("qry_Template_Upload").Shapes("textbox 1").TextFrame.Characters.Text = Testarray(2, 1) & " " & Testarray(2, 2) & _
    Chr(13) & "BU: " & Testarray(2, 16) & _
    Chr(13) & "Entity Sponsor(1): " & Testarray(2, 14) & "  " & "Entity Sponor(2): " & Testarray(2, 15) & _
    Chr(13) & "Status: " & Testarray(2, 3) & Chr(13) & "Direct Ownership: " & Testarray(2, 7) & Chr(13) & "Pickup% " & Testarray(2, 9) & _
    Chr(13) & "Voting Interest: " & Testarray(2, 17) & _
    Chr(13) & "Consolidation: " & Testarray(2, 11) & Chr(13) & "Equity: " & Testarray(2, 12) & Chr(13) & "Comments: " & Chr(13) & Testarray(2, 13)

I was wondering is there a way to get the information displayed in "textbox1" to update as the cursor moves throughout the sheet?

For instance, if the cursor is in row 33 then the array would change to "Testarray(33,...)." and if the cursor is then moved to row 55, the array would update to "Testarray(55,....)"

I have searched the forum but I haven't found anythinhg. Is this even possible?

Round to nearest half hour?
Use =MROUND(A2,"0:30") to round to nearest half hour. Use =CEILING(A2,"0:30") to round to next half hour.

I set this to update the textbox on SheetSelectionChange, it displays the row and column number in a text box, so you can change it to what ever you would like :)

Code:
Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
ActiveSheet.Shapes("textbox 1").TextFrame.Characters.Text = "Testarray(" & ActiveCell.Row & "," & ActiveCell.Column & ")"
End Sub

typing that so many times is a pain so reduce it down to something like this maybe:

Code:
Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
Dim r, c As Integer
    r = ActiveCell.Row
    c = ActiveCell.Column
    ActiveSheet.Shapes("textbox 1").TextFrame.Characters.Text = "Testarray(" & r & "," & c & ")"
End Sub
