That's straightforward, goto the Home sheet, then goto the Developer tab and in the Controls section click Insert.

Now choose either a Forms command button or a ActiveX comman button and place it wherever you want on the sheet.

If you picked a Forms control you should automatically see the Macros dialog box.

Just click New and you should then see something like this.
Sub Button2_Click()

End Sub

Open in new window

This is where the code goes to open the userform, and here's the code.
TimeSheetEntry.Show

Open in new window

After adding that code this is what you should have.
Sub Button2_Click()
    TimeSheetEntry.Show ' open userform
End Sub

Open in new window


If you added an ActiveX button double click the button.

You should then see something like this, and this is where the code to open the form should go.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    TimeSheetEntry.Show ' open userform
End Sub

Open in new window

I added it to the previous workbook, and added buttons to the userform, though they don't do anything at the moment.

See the attachment.

You left a box in the upper left of the home page.  It crashes when I try to delete.

Do you know anything about adding a pop up calendar so I can select a date in the past or future?

It depends what you want to do with them really, which at the moment I don't know.:)

PS That 'box' was in the original file you uploaded.

What I want to do is "add" the information added to the worksheet form (next available ROW.

Eventually I will want to duplicate this button to update employee information and update codes.

Add what information where?

The userform has various other textboxes that don't seem to match to anything on the employee sheet.
