    Testing for "text" in an input box

    Hi all,
    I have tried the following to test my input box to make sure it is text but it returns FALSE even when it is text.

    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    Any thoughts as to why this returns FALSE even when the input box contains only text?

    The value from TextBox will be always "Text".

    What are you trying to do?

    Use Type = 2 when you use Application.InputBox
    That way you don't need to check if it is text.

    If I understand your setup correctly, your code sets Text_Test equal to True (not False) every time which is what I would expect. Why don't you post a copy of your workbook that is always returning False (see the yellow banner near the top of this forum's window) so we can see exactly what you see instead of trying to duplicate it from you brief description.

    Thank you guys for your input on this.
    I was so focused on trying to handle errors from incorrect inputs that I totally missed the fact that the value from a text box would already be ...well ... text!
