Dynamic fields on forms

I need to have a variable number of fields on a form with different names

based upon an array of names

I've succesfully built the form using the code below InitUserFields . UF is

a dynamic array of field names UFV is a matching array of initial values for

each field.

Now I need to retrieve the values that the user enters into the form and

store them back in UFV.

I've tried to use EXECUTE & EVAL as shown in the sub GetUserFields but I

get the error sub or function not defined on ECECUTE or EVAL whichever I use.

I've included references to VB Applications Extensibility 5.3 and Excel 11.0

Object library without any difference.

Does anyone have a better idea of how to achieve this?

Sub InitUserFields(UF, UFV)

Dim X As Integer

Dim NewLabel, NewTextbox

For X = 0 To UBound(UF)

Set NewLabel = Me.Controls.Add("Forms.label.1")

With NewLabel

> Name = UF(X).Name & "Title"

> Caption = UF(X).Name

> Top = 252

> Left = 366 + X * 94

> Width = 90

> Height = 12

> Font.Name = "Tahoma"

End With

Set NewTextbox = Me.Controls.Add("Forms.textbox.1")

With NewTextbox

> Name = UF(X).Name

> Value = UFV(X)

> Top = 264

> Left = 366 + X * 94

> Width = 90

> Height = 15.75

> Font.Name = "Tahoma"

End With

Next

End Sub

Sub GetUserFields(UF, UFV)

Dim X As Integer

For X = 0 To UBound(UF)

Execute (UFV(X) = "Me." & UF(X).Name & ".Value")

Next

End Sub

Sorry, but I don't see what this has to do with Outlook custom forms.

Silly me, as soon as I'd posted I saw the answer after spending the previous

4 hours loking for a solution.

Sub GetUserFields(UF, UFV)

Dim X As Integer

For X = 0 To UBound(UF)

UFV(X) = Me.Controls(UF(X).Name).Value

Next

End Sub

Well in my eyes it's a formin OUTLOOK customised by VBA, but maybe I don't

understand what Outlook custom forms implies, in which case please point me

to the correct forum in case I get another problem in future.

Thanks.

Outlook custom forms are the UI/code templates for Outlook message, contact,

and other items. They're quite different from VBA user forms. Questions

about those go in the microsoft.public.outlook.program_vba newsgroup.

And, please, always include your version of Outlook when you post.

Sue,

Thanks for that info. Strange thing is I started in that group and got

directed to this one. Anyway I've got the solution so that's the most

important thing.
