VBA Macro to Prompt User for information

I want to prompt a user for a date entry, and then insert the date variable into the active Word document.  How can I set this up?  Do you have any examples I can reference?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here is some VBA that will prompt for a date, validate it, and then enter it wherever the cursor is.

    sDate = InputBox("Please Enter a Date", "Date Prompt")
    
    If IsDate(sDate) Then
        Selection.TypeText (sDate)
    Else
        MsgBox "That's not a valid date!"
    End If
