    Data previously entered on UserForm dissappears, but still stored on worksheet - Excel VBA

    I feel I've asked this before, but apparently not since I cannot find it. It may have just been part of another question.

    My multi-page userform is set up to store the information entered within two different worksheets within the same workbook; however, at some point - either after the Userform is closed or the Excel workbook is closed, it clears the data from the UserForm. I don't want this to happen, ever. I want it always to pull from the information stored so if the user must close down the workbook and return later to finish, or return a month later to add more information to already exhisting information, they don't have to start completely over. How can I get this Userform to behave that way?

    Thank you!

    Hello eemiller1997,

    The UserForm will not retain data after it has been unloaded from memory. You will have to write the code needed to pull the data from and copy it into the correct controls on the UserForm. Place the code in the UserForm _Initialize event procedure or if there is a lot code, create routines that you can be call in the Initialize event. This will make easier to edit and maintain your code.
    Sincerely,
    Leith Ross

    Remember To Do the Following....

    1. Use code tags. Place [CODE] before the first line of code and [/CODE] after the last line of code.

    You need code to populate the userform when it opens.
    If posting code please use code tags, see here.

    According to my googling research, to code the data to populate into the Userform during the initialize event, means reversing the code that puts the code onto the worksheet. Is this correct?

    So, this code:

    would turn into this code....

    And I would place that code into the into the following Initailize event, just after 'Call PopCandidateCombo'?

    That looks about right, though you seem to be missing any interviewers.

    Yes, I would do the same for that set of data by adding it to the rest of the code above. Great. Thank you. I will test this and get back with you
