Can you post a sample of what the table looks like? I'm sure someone will be able to help you if they see the layout.

its not really a table, its just two text boxes that have one number in it that i want to increase by one when a button is pressed.

if there is a simpler way of doing it, please suggest!

thanks, james.

I made a sample file on how it could be done. :)
Check it out and see if you like it.

NOTE: This macro works in SLIDESHOW MODE.

Hi, this looks great and its exactly what i was looking for :clap: and i can see the macros and stuff but nothing happens when i click the +/- buttons.

Any ideas why??:think:

Thanks, James.

no wait it works, i needed to give it access to the visual basics project or something like that :p
