Excel VBA - Basics videos | Excel VBA Part 21 - User Forms

Posted by Andrew Gould on 28 February 2014

Designing a User Form in VBA is a great way to allow you users to interact with your workbook. This video teaches you how to create forms, how to add controls and manipulate their properties and how to add code the events of the form to make it respond to user actions. You'll also get an insight into how much code goes into performing even very simple validation to control what your users can do with the form.

See our full range of VBA training resources, or test your knowledge of VBA with one of our VBA skills assessment tests.

Making a  video bigger

You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:

View full screen

Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.


When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.

Improving the quality of a video

To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:

Settings icon

Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.


Choose to change the video quality:

Video quality

Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.


The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):

Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!

Hello Sir,

I would like to thank you for the wonderful training on all the topics which are posted on this webiste.

I'm trying to learn Excel VBA Introduction Part 21 - User Forms, however unable to proceed with this video, because whenever i click on "Additional control" from tools/toolbox option, nothing happens ( i mean window doesn't pop up). As mentioned in video, I also tried to download Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 Common Controls. However after installing this nothing worked. 

I currently have MicroSoft office Home and Student 2016 installed on my computer with 64 bit. 

Could you please help me resolve this problem.
