Default controlsource binding on text boxes

Hi, I have recently move from C (and PASCAL) to VB. Does anyone know an easy way of displaying the value in an excel spreadsheet cell using controlsource property which allows the text box to be bound read only? My problem is that lots of the (old) excel stuff I am working on has formulae in the cells and if I use controlsource property the text box overwrites the formula . I can get around this using range and copy but this is cumbersome and can lead to problems. Anyone know a better way? Rgds eddie
