VBA: Input from a User in a Macro (InputBox)
There are many instances when you may wish to prompt the user for Input from your macro. This is easily done by using an InputBox. The user Input can then be translated into a variable to use in your macros. Here is an example using the most popular features of an InputBox.
The following code does three things:
1. Prompts for input with an InputBox and assigns it to a variable
2. Verify’s input, otherwise exits
3. Returns the input in a message box
Public Sub MyInputBox() Dim MyInput As String MyInput = InputBox("This is my InputBox", _ "MyInputTitle", "Enter your input text HERE") If MyInput = "Enter your input text HERE" Or _ MyInput = "" Then Exit Sub End If MsgBox "The text from MyInputBox is " & MyInput End Sub
