Text boxes can be either bound or unbound. You use a bound text box to display data from a particular field. You use an unbound text box to display the results of a calculation, or to accept input from a user (as in the following code example).


The following code example uses a form with a text box to receive user input. The code displays a message when the user inputs data and then presses Enter.

Private Sub txtValue1_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)

MsgBox "The Text box is being updated."

End Sub
