    Userform textboxes, select first textbox

    Hi. With the code below, a userform with textboxes shows. Textboxes show contents of cells.
    I want to select the first textbox automatically, as per image below.
    Trying to use ".SetFocus" but will not work.

    It is because you have set focus to the exit button in the 'activate' event.
    'activate' takes place after 'create' & 'initialise'

    I've commented out the Activate event.
    However it does not resolve.

    With the activate event commented out the text box DOES take focus.
    the backcolour has been reset by your mouse event, it does not change until mousedown.
    You will need another line of code if you want the backcolour to change at the same time as the setfocus.

    I have commented out the mouse down event but can't see any focus.
    Perhaps I am asking the wrong question as well.
    As well as the focus, the cursor is also needed.

    Tried the following without success.

    If you see any focus, please attach your workbook.

    There is no need to set focus.
    The frame is first in tab order and the sole textbox within that frame takes focus.
    I have attached your file with the activate commented out.
    I have inserted one line of code that alters the backcolour of the box with focus and the cursor is present also.

    Thank you for clarifying.
    This resolves the issue in this thread.
    Hopefully the Activate event won't be required.
