    Userform multipage control - exit event not firing or event order

    Hi

    I need some help. I have a Multipage with 3 tabs (each tab has its own controls but they also share some command buttons with every other tab eg - save, close etc). When the user clicks a command button eg - close, I need to check if any of the data has changed on the tab before closing. I have exit events on all controls to check the data status. I need these exit events to have fired prior to the user clicking on a command button and then execute the command button code. The problem is that the command button code executes first then the control_exit event runs.

    If the user clicks another control in the tab first, then a command button, all the code executes in the correct order.

    What can I do to make this work correctly?

    Thanks

    Hi all

    I have solved this and posted the solution so others can make use of it. Apparently this is a known VBA bug. When exiting to the multipage frame by clicking on a control external to the frame, you need to force the focus back into the frame to ensure all exit events run before the code associated with the external control runs. To do this, I added a dummy text box in the frame (not visible etc) and added code to the external control to SetFocus on the dummy text box first and then run the external control code. Example: if I were to click in a textbox1 on multipage(0) and then click the Close button, I want the exit event for textbox1 to run before the Close code
