Dim vec As Variant

vec = Split(ActiveCell.Value, ",")
Me.Textbox1.Text = vec(UBound(vec)) + 1

I thought all of the numbers were in one cell.
You probably need

Me.TextBox1.Text = Application.Max(Worksheet("Sheet2").Columns(2)) + 1

the numbers are all in there own rows, so 12001 in row 3, 12002 in row 4 ect ect, i need it to find the last row with data and add 1 to that number.
thank you

Number in the last row, or the highest number?

well they go in order as it a job number and as a job comes in thats the next number. so starts the year at 12001, then 12002 ect ect which is why i want the text box to display the last rows number +1 as the userform is creating a new job so will the job next number

Then MAX() + 1 should do it fine.

That means you don't have a Sheet4.

i get confused because sometimes the code is the worksheet code not the worksheet name, changed it to the worksheet name and is now workinmg perfect. thank you so much for your help.
