Why use InputBox, for such large Values, Add a TextBox to the form and use it for input. Another way round is to add a TextBox in another Form and show that Form in Modal. Textbox can take 64K.


have a general declaration to your textbox
dim x(name of your textbox) as long.

for you to have more characters on your textbox

hope i'll help you a bit
