    Floating Text Box

    Is there a way for a text box to be always visible in a worksheet as one scrolls vertically and horizontally?

    I have tried this code but it does not work (Also I am not sure about the text box name (TextBox1) as is not visible in object's properties)

    Good morning drgkt

    Not with a textbox, no. It's fixed to the cells.

    You could achieve the effect you're after with a userform, though.
    Set the form up, and in the properties, set ShowModal to false.

    Works fine for me with an ActiveX Textbox.

    Avoid using Select, Selection and Activate in your code. Use With ... End With instead.

    Re: Floating Text Box

    See error
    Note I am using Excel for XP (2002).
    Can you post an XLS file?


    EDIT: Whatever might be the solution, form or textbox, can it be shown ONLY on a specific sheet of the workbook?

    I am with Dominic.

    Create a Userform with a single textbox

    Open and close the the userform using the code below.
    Right Click on the sheet name at the bottom of excel and select view code to see the code.
