Hello all,

New user here!
I am new to coding in Excel (pretty much Excel itself) and do not have access to Access. I would like to create an ordering list for our consumables at work that:
- once you click on the item# column, a command window pops up and asks if you are ordering today. If you click yes another pop up will ask you amount being ordered and P.O. or credit card use (if P.O. selected, P.O.# should be asked). Another sheet, within the same workbook, will record the date, item name, P.O.# or credit card use and amount ordered, with a running $ total.

Is this possible? Thank you

System Configuration: Macintosh / Chrome 74.0.3729.157

When you say credit card use, do you mean the name of the card or the number?

Hello! Thank you for responding. For credit card, I would like the option of recording just the words "Credit Card".

Have you unlocked the developer tab? How familar are you with form construction?

Lets start by inserting a form, name it frmENTRY. place two text boxs on the form, named txtAMOUNT, and another named txtDESC. Place a button on the form, named btnSUBMIT.

START with that

Do you have the developer tab enabled. On the ribbon, do you see DEVELOPER? We need to gain access to the VBA explorer console.



We are going to build a form. We will not be using a worksheet for order entry, but will be building a "pop up" window to enter it in, just as you requested. If you need help getting the developer tab unlocked, post back.

Its ok, lets see if your version has it. Go to preferences, select Ribbon amd Toolbar.
Under Customize the ribbon, select main tabs, and select Developer. Click save.

That should be it. Close excel amd reopen it. Developer should be there.

Hello ac3mark, sorry I've been away for awhile. Hope that you are still active. I still cannot find the new form. Maybe I am not right clicking in the correct spot?
