Setting the text of a shape from custom properties
« on: June 16, 2008, 02:21:56 PM »

I must be a dummy, but I can't seem to figure out how to set the text of a shape from the value of a custom property.

I know that to get the text of a shape you can use SHAPETEXT(TheText), but I don't see a cell or function to set the text.

Thanks,

Gordon (the dummy)

Figured it out (inserting a field with a custom property) in the text box.

Thanks anyways!
