    Dynamic Userform doesnt update label caption

    Hi,
    I have multiple Userforms with labels etc, all controls are similarily named (so I could do this) and I can refer to the Userform dynamically but the Label caption/Controls don't change, any idea's how to get them working.

    I have zero experience with VBA or any programming for that matter.

    this is the Code I use which works but the captions don't change
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Are you perhaps making this more diccicult than it needs to be?
    This works fine for me.

    Re: Dynamic Userform doesnt update label caption

    I think you need to xplain what you are doing. Are you trying to create a userform within your code?

    Also, you haven't declared Formname as a variable & yo try to use it before giving it value
    Hope that helps.

    You need to switch two lines round in your code as Roy said and then show the form:

    Re: Dynamic Userform doesnt update label caption

    Thanks for the replies.

    What I want to do is not use:

    because I have more than 1 Userform, ie Userform1, Userform2 I want to write a single procedure which will end up changing Label1.Caption. The tricky part is the procedure may use Userform1 Or Userform2 or others...the Label on either Userform will have the same name to make it easier if necessary.

    The oUserform part I have works but, the Caption doesn't change. I have watched the code run with no problems it just does it and nothing changes. Label caption remains blank

    The code I posted does work - did you try it?
    If so, is your form set to show modelessly? If it is, you would need to specifically repaint it.
