    Text Box's after-update property does not allow to delete existing populated value

    • I have a text box in a USERFORM .
    • Have the following code associated with the text box. (which helps perform basic arithematic… eg. If engineers wanna key in 39+137, instead of 176.)

    When I run the userform, the userform’s INITIALIZE procedure populates the textbox with value from a cell in the spreadsheet. When I delete the value completely , it gives error almost instantaneously

    Error is "Could not set the value property. Type Mismatch"

    Could that be because when you delete the value in the textbox you leave an empty string and Evaluate("") is returning an error?

    Oops, there was a typo.

    I had .ValueText, it should be just .Value - I've edited the post.
