Using Form elements in Excel 2007
Posted on 2009-12-27
I have long been accustomed to using Excel 2003, and I've been laboring to get used to 2007 at work. I really don't like the ribbon, and I'm sorry they did such a major redesign of the reliable and capable drop-down menu.
I am trying to figure out how to place form elements in an Excel worksheet, and none of the menus seem to provide this most basic function. As an experiment, I created a simple button in 2003 and opened the file in 2007; and my button both opened and performed the desired function when I pushed it. From that experiment, I surmise that the capability of creating buttons, text boxes, check boxes, radio buttons, etc. in 2007 must exist, I just can't find it.
