I'm looking for a way to automatically format the date in a VBA text box to a MM/DD/YYYY format, and I want it to format as the user is typing it in. For instance, once the user types in the second number, the program will automatically type in a "/". Now, I got this working (as well as the second dash) with the following code:
Private Sub txtBoxBDayHim_Change() If txtBoxBDayHim.TextLength = 2 or txtBoxBDayHim.TextLength = 5 then txtBoxBDayHim.Text = txtBoxBDayHim.Text + "/" End Sub
Now, this works great when typing. However, when trying to delete, it still enters in the dashes, so its impossible for the user to delete past one of the dashes (deleting a dash results in a length of 2 or 5, and the sub is then run again, adding in another dash). Any suggestions on a better way to do this?
