EXCEL and VB
Posted on 2002-04-16
I need to upgrade my EXCEL spreadsheet user-interaction for the volunteer organisation I am a member of.
In the past, all that is presented to the user when they log on is my purpose-written User Form to look at information regarding members (names addresses etc)
Now the organisation needs a bit more interaction and I need to upgrade the form.
The trouble is that before, all the interaction was done by Command Buttons but the changes they want would mean about 20 buttons!
What I want to do is add a MENU structure to my user form. Having used the HELP I can see how to add user menues to the SPREADSHEET part of EXCEL but I do not think I can add menues to my UserForm. Is this correct?
I do not want to add the menues to the spreadsheet part, just my form.
If menues cannot be added, how can I do it using the available controls? Anyone out there got over this problem?
I am using EXCEL 97
Part 2: When I run VB from the EXCEL TOOLS/MACRO options in the spreadsheet menu, does the VB come with the EXCEL package or am I kicking off another program? Is there an upgrade for VB that I can download? IE Is there a download for VB that does have userform menu controls in it? I believe that the (separately purchasable) VisualBasic package contains such a thing.
