    need explanation of coding frames in vba

    I am trying to understand what exactly Frame_enter() or Frame_exit() is for.

    I thought that frame_enter meant that as soon as you entered into the frame for anything(checkboxes, textboxes, ect.) that your code would be applied. and the same for when you exit the frame for frame_exit()

    example (the code is short, just for this);

    Private Sub Frame1_Enter()
    Dim wb as workbook
    set wb = workbooks.open("path")
    activeworkbook.sheets("name").activate
    end sub

    Private Sub Frame1_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
    wb.close true
    end sub

    shouldn't that open and close the workbook?

    The problem is the way wb is defined. wb should be defined as a global not local.

    [VBA]
    Private wb As Workbook
    Private Sub Frame1_Enter()
    Set wb = Workbooks.Open("path")
    ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("name").Activate
    End Sub

    Private Sub Frame1_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
    wb.Close True
    End Sub
    [/VBA]
