Hi I am doing this simple program in visual basic express

Sum.Text = Val(Num1.Text * 3) + Val(Num2.Text) + Val(Num3.Text) - Val(Num3.Text)

This allows the user to enter number of wins (which gets x by 3) number of draws and number of losses.

I have to limit the user to entering a combination of only 10 i.e 4 wins 3 draws 3 lose.

I have been trying to put an it statement in that will prompt user to check input if they enter a combination of less or more than 10, any help would be great.

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks for looking

first of all clear these things out.....

num1.text --> refers to the textbox where user supposed to enter total wins
num2.text --> refers to the textbox where user supposed to enter total draws
num3.text --> refers to the textbox where user supposed to enter total loses

am I right or wrong???

if yes, then further tell me, how would you like to check whether the values entered are not exceeded 10? will the sum of num1.text+num2.text+num3.text be compared to 10 or something else?

explain more clearly how would you wish to compare the values...
