Is there a way to make a user enter a value greater than 0 in an input box?  In other words, 1 or greater.

you can check/verify if the value entered is not equal to 0

If InputBox("Enter Value") >= 1 Then
    msgbox "Good value"
    else
    MsgBox "Please enter a value greater than 0"
 
End If
0

if you extend Rey's code it will accommodate strings, nulls etc.
Sub test1()
If Val(Nz(InputBox("Enter Value"), 0)) > 0 Then
     MsgBox "Good value"
     Else
     MsgBox "Please enter a value greater than 0"
 End If
End Sub
0

As the Inputbox always returns a string, so should Nz, thus it should rather be:

Sub test1()
    If Val(Nz(InputBox("Enter Value"))) > 0 Then
        MsgBox "Good value"
    Else
        MsgBox "Please enter a value greater than 0"
    End If
End Sub
