Hi.
I've created a userform in Excel, and everything works fine except this..
I've used the following code to make sure that when the macro button for submitting data entered is pressed, data is not submitted without one of the cells (part number) being entered...

'check for a part number
If Trim(Me.txtQty.Value) = "" Then
Me.txtPart.SetFocus
MsgBox "Please enter a part number"
Exit Sub
End If

However, I've used the multipage tool to make the userform two pages. This button is at the bottom of page 2, but the data it refers to is on the top of page 1, and now the button won't work (I get an error message telling me to debug). Any ideas please?

It's been a while since I've coded a UserForm with a page control. But if memory serves, you'll need to change the value of the multipage control before you can SetFocus to a control on a certain page. Think it would look something like:

Code:
Me.MultiPage1 = 0
Me.txtPart.SetFocus

I think the page enumeration is zero-based, but you might double check. Also, if that syntax isn't working you might have to use a longer syntax like:

Me.MultiPage1.Pages(0).txtPart

to reach your control.

Hi Greg, thanks for your response. I tried this, but now I am getting an error message which says "Can't move focus to the control because it is invisible, not enabled, or of a type that does not accept th focus." I'm confused as the control works fine if placed on the same page as the parts number..

The following works fine for me. Note that I did have to explicitely tell Excel to set the value of multipage1 to 0 -- got an error otherwise.

<font face=Courier New><SPAN style="color:#00007F">Private</SPAN> <SPAN style="color:#00007F">Sub</SPAN> CommandButton1_Click()
    <SPAN style="color:#00007F">If</SPAN> Me.TextBox1.Value = "" <SPAN style="color:#00007F">Then</SPAN>
        MsgBox "Blank"
        Me.MultiPage1.Value = 0
        Me.TextBox1.SetFocus
    <SPAN style="color:#00007F">Else</SPAN>
        MsgBox Me.TextBox1.Value
        Me.Hide
    <SPAN style="color:#00007F">End</SPAN> <SPAN style="color:#00007F">If</SPAN>
<SPAN style="color:#00007F">End</SPAN> <SPAN style="color:#00007F">Sub</SPAN>
</FONT>
