I have an excel file created a while ago. There's a button on the first sheet. When I click the button a dialog box is diplayed. I would like to make a small change to this dialog but I can't find it. It's not shown in VBA editor or anywhere else. It is hidden somewhere. How can I find it?

RE: hidden dialog

Could it be a Data Validation drop-down list?
Data, Validation, Settings, Allow, List.

RE: hidden dialog

No, it's a dialog box like a user form.

RE: hidden dialog

UserForms are usually stored in the Forms folder of the Project. From the standard spreadsheet view ALT F11 will bring up the code window. From there open the Project explorer window (CTL R) and you should find the Forms folder there

Good Luck

RE: hidden dialog

If the spreadsheet was created in Excel 5, then dialog boxes were stored on a sheet (just like the macro sheets).  The sheet may be hidden.  The dialog will not show up in the VBA editor.
