VBA Macro To Create & Format Text Box On WorksheetOct 25, 2008
I have code that creates a textbox on a worksheet, copies the contents of a cell from another worksheet to that textbox. I want to be able to select that text and format its appearence ( center the text, bold and font style and size). This is what I have so far but I do not know how to select the text that was imported.
Dim bname As String
Sheets("cover").Shapes.AddTextbox(msoTextOrientationHorizontal, 96.75, 512.25, _
230.25, 120#).Name = "client"
bname = Sheets("data").Range("a3").Value
Sheets("cover").Shapes("client").TextFrame.Characters.Text = bname
With Selection.Characters(Start:=1, Length:=17).Font
.Name = "Arial"
.FontStyle = "Regular"
.Size = 10
.Strikethrough = False
.Superscript = False
.Subscript = False
.OutlineFont = False
.Shadow = False
.Underline = xlUnderlineStyleNone
.ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
