Prompting for Information

Office 2007

There are several different ways you can prompt for information from a user.

  • Use the Microsoft Visual Basic InputBox function to display a dialog box with a message and an edit box. When the user clicks OK, the function returns the text that the user entered.
  • Use the Visual Basic MsgBox function to display a simple message. You can display several different command buttons and icons. This function returns a number that indicates which button was clicked.
  • Use a built-in Microsoft Word dialog box to get user input for a specific Microsoft Office Word feature.
  • Use a custom form to get user input. For information about adding controls to a form, see Add a control to a form.
