Referencing VB userforms from Excel cell

Referencing VB userforms from Excel cell

Referencing VB userforms from Excel cell

(OP)
Hey guys,

I'm trying to write some simple code that will allow the userform that's opened by a single method to be altered depending on the value in an excel cell.
In the base case, cell A1 in Sheet1 has the value "Userform1". With in the method code I now need to transform this cell reference into a format that is compatible with the "Show" method.

Any help would be welcomed with open arms.

Craig

RE: Referencing VB userforms from Excel cell

The main thing is That Userform1 of VBA refer to "Object" whereas Userform1 of cell A1 refere to "string" value so these are not comparable.The following is the simple code which would work for you.Assume you have three userforms.

Sub Excelform()
    Select Case Cells(1, 1)
        Case "userform1"
            UserForm1.Show
        Case "userform2"
            UserForm2.Show
        Case "userform3"
            UserForm3.Show
        End Select
End Sub
