Hi,

I am very new to excel VBA and Macro, I want to create a macro which loads the userform when we open the excel to accept inputs from the user. Can anyone please help me in getting this done with the excel.

Thanks in advance

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

UserForm1.Show

End Sub

Open in new window


Do you want the "accept inputs" part to be done by the userform or my the workbook?

In userform itself

Okay, most often when the user is shown a Userform he just fills in textbox values or selects entries in a listbox, etcetera, but if you want to ask a question you can do it this way in the userform's code.

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
Dim strName As String

strName = InputBox("Please enter your name", "Enter Name", "John Doe")
End Sub

Open in new window


That code will be executed when the userform's Activate event is fired. That happens when you show the form. You can put code like that in any of the userform's events. I don't know what you know about events but here's how you can see what they are.

No points for this.....

You should save the file with the .xlsm extension and not with the regular .xlsx extension.


When you get that message,
Click no
from the file type box select Macro enabled
Save the file
