Excel VBA videos | Excel VBA Part 11a - Application.InputBox

Posted by Andrew Gould on 03 November 2014

If you've used the generic InputBox function in VBA you may be frustrated by its limitations. This video shows you how to use the far superior Application.InputBox method. You'll learn how to specify the data type returned by the InputBox and how to use its built-in validation feature to control what users can enter. The video also covers how to return a simple formula and a more complex function from the InputBox and also how to allow users to select a range of cells which can then be referenced by your VBA code. The final part of the video covers a more complex example in which the InputBox returns an array of values which can be looped over and manipulated in various ways.
