I have put several Text Box's on a Form and assigned this as Text in the Text Box's property sheet "[- Available -]". When I try to Type something in th TextBox it won't do it nothing Happens. Do I have to erase what's in the Box and Then Type or What?

you will need to delete that text to type in the box.
You can leave the text as "[- Available -]" if you want but put an "onfocus" event in your code to automatically delete it...something like ...
Private Sub txtThisbox_OnFocus()
txtThisbox.text = ""
something along those lines.

Where &or when do I call This OnFocus routine?

It never clears. If I hi-lite & press delete it comes up invalid procedure & crashes. I want to be able to Type Over it and accept what I typed, and If I want 1 of the 8 text boxes to accept the text in the original text box to be able to skip over that box. Its a very simple idea. But 1 this wonderful world of event programing can't seem to accomplish.!

I'm sorry, it's supposed to be GotFocus, not onFocus...I'm getting my programming languages mixed up again...
Private Sub Text1_GotFocus()
Text1.Text = ""
That should clear out the textbox when it get the focus, either by clicking it or by tabing to it.
