You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Add a form to the workbook in the above folder for adding a film:

Excel VBA Macros exercise - Forms (image 1)

Your form could look like this - the yellow popup caption is the ControlTiptext property

Add code to the Cancel button so that it closes the form, and to the OK button so that it:

  • Goes to the bottom of the film name column
  • Goes one cell further down
  • Sets the value of this cell to be the film name entered
  • Sets the value of the cell one to the right to be the category entered

Ideally your form should also check that a user has filled in both of the fields.

If you have spare time, you could add code to check that the film entered does not already exist in the list.

Save this workbook as Best films, then close it down.
