VBA: User form in Excel
Posted on 2002-03-28
What I have created, using VBA in Excel, is a custom user form for customer payments input.
The form has 3 fields for specifying the customer number, the customer name and the amount paid.
The customer name is linked to a database in the same Excel s/sheet containing all customer numbers and names.
On the form I have a button and when pressed, I have a macro that runs and picks up the customer name by looking at the database until it finds the customer number and picks up the name - the cell on the right. The macro works, but I want to know if there is a way to do this without pressing this button.
Can I get the macro to run or use another method so that the customer name can be displayed automatically once the customer is entered.
I am hoping this is pretty simple, but please help.
I can not think of a way and it does get annoying to always go through an extra step in order to verify the customer name.
