    pass a variable to the MsgBox function

    Is it possible to pass a variable to the MsgBox function. I need to let my user know what item is associated with part they are trying to update.



    I was wandering if I could use: MsgBox "Part is currently locked by item Number:" & variable & .

    As you can see I have no clue what the syntax would be, even if this is possible. If this is not possible I am open to suggestions.

    This is possible, though I'm not exactly sure what the syntax is for a string & a variable, but this is how I usually use just a variable.

    Dim varNumber As Long
    varNumber = 1200
    MsgBox varNumber

    That would display 1200 for you, but I'm not quite sure how to get the other text that you are looking for in front of it.

    Your format is correct, except you forgot the quotes around the period at the end.

    MsgBox "Part is currently locked by item Number:" & variable & "."

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
