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.

Create a new workbook.

Write a macro which displays two input boxes in succession (you'll also need to create two separate variables to hold the answers).  Firstly, to ask your user to type in their name:

So far, so inoffensive

The second input box should ask a bit more personal information about your user:

There is no accounting for taste

Finally, display back to the user the results of their choices:

You can use MsgBox to display the text, and the & symbol to join bits of text together
