    thanks... that was very helpful... but how if you want the reverse of it? I mean, to convert percentage into decimal?

    divide by 100...

  5. Ummmm I'm lost, can you give an example, will this code go into the TextBox that you want to change the decimals on? For example I have an amount in a sheet that I view on a UserForm via a TextBox, do I just add this code to it? Shouldn't it be like a AfterUpdate() or a Change() Sub? All I want is for the TextBox to show the percentage as 16% but no matter how I Format it it always displays as 0.16000%. I have tried TextBox1= Format(TextBox1, "Percent") also TextBox1= Format(TextBox1, "##.#0%") and nothing.
