Textboxes

It depends what you mean really.

You could use a textbox to type in something like 1/2 then use code to interpret that as 0.5.

The user will not be typing it in. I want the userform to generate 2 fractions to be displayed - and then the user will choose the larger.

I know Native Excel has a format for this - I was wondering if Userforms have the same capability.

Why are you using textboxes if there's going to be no user input? Why not use labels?

Also why not load the fractions from a worksheet using the Text property of a cell. That returns the value in the cell as it's formatted on the sheet, though I'm not 100% sure how it would work with the Fraction format.

I'll have a look into it and post back.

If you are saying that I could format values less than one as fractions in Native Excel (which I know) and then transfer that format into a label on a userform - that would be perfect. I would I do this?

Here's an example.

Put 0.6 in a cell, say A1.

Format that cell as a Fraction, as required.

Then use this code.
Code:
Label1.Caption = Range("A1").Text
I'm not 100% sure how you'll be able to use this in the rest of the code.

You'll somehow need to change it back to a value, if you want to compare it to other values.

Ah - so you are saying that when I "copy" it into the label, I am only taking the format, not the value. I suppose I can get around this by keeping track of the value "underneath" in excel - but it seems like duplication. Native Excel can keep a fraction value and format in a cell, why can't a Userform keep it in a label or textbox?
