    Marquee Textbox (Excel 97 SR2)

    I've placed a text box on my userform for status. I would like to marquee the contents of this box. Any ideas on how I might do this?

    Thanks!

    The usual way is to set the text equal to the mid(textstring,2) & left(textstring,1). Just keep doing that, and the effect will be a marquee. You may need a repaint in there (I don't usually work in Excel).

    I haven't tried it, but I assume it would be the same way you do it in VB. There's an example in VBA help. Use the object browser to lookup Timer.
