    Beating a message box character limit

    Hey all,

    At the end of a procedure I am trying the produce a Message Box that displays any relevant information. This information is basically a string created by adding various elements from an Array -

    This seems to work but sometimes the output off the String in the Message box is truncated, so I'm guessing there is a character limit (1024 from the looks of it). Basically, I'm wondering if there is either a way of extending the character limit (if the string length is over 1024) or if there is a better method of outputting the data in the Array 'ErrorLog'?

    Thanks.

    You will have to create your own message box using a userform and either a textbox or listbox.

    Poo, was hoping I wouldn't have to go down that route!

    Thanks.

    I did this a few years ago -- perhaps you can adapt.

    Thanks, I'll have a play with it and see if I can get to grips with it. I did find something similar earlier, but this looks far simpler and seems to do exactly the same.
