    Hi-
    Textbox1 shows the number listed in range(A1").

    Private sub userform1.activate
    textbox1.text = range(A1")
    end sub

    My question is how do you show that if range "A1" reads $1.23, then I want textbox1 to read $1.23 and not 1.2333333 upon activating the textbox?

    you could try:

    textbox1.text = Format(range(A1"),"$#,##0.00")

    But beware, if youre doing any calculations, this will be a problem (as i found the hard way) and will take some undoing later. The format turns the value into a string.

    Thanks Robfo1- This worked. Im asuming that if theres a code thats reading textbox1 its reading it as a string instead of a value? How did you go about in correcting that problem?

    You can link a text box to a range without using VBA by clicking on the text box and typing "=A1" in the formula bar. The contents of cell A1 (including its format) will be displayed in the text box. Format cell A1 as $.
    It's never too late to learn something new.
