Professor Dumbledore keeps his budget in Excel, and wants to be able to click on a button to add another period each month:

Excel VBA Macros exercise - Recording macros and buttons (image 1)

What the spreadsheet should look like after clicking on the button shown

Help Professor Dumbledore fulfil his wishes by:

  • Recording a macro to accomplish the task shown, using a suitable combination of absolute and relative recording (and indeed the hint below)
  • Adding a button as shown and attaching this macro to it

Note that you are allowed to edit the macro after you've recorded it.

Your macro might, for example, select period 1 using absolute references, then switch to relative cell references to go to the end of the row of data, etc.

Save this as Adding period.
