Accepting Values and Popup Messages in Excel VBA: Input Box

Input Box is helpful to accept the values from the user, user can enter some values and those can be used in the our program.

Here is the simple Input Box Example, we will write a code to receive the user name and display that name in the message box. To display that particular name we have to store some where and then we can use it for displaying in the message box.

Here we have the need of variables, Variables can store some data while execution time and we can use then in our program.

Here, first we will accept the value from the user and we will store it in a variable, then we will display the value of that variable using Message Box, copy this code and place in the module and run it.

Sub sbExampleInputBox()
    'Declaring a variable to store the inputbox value
    'Dim statement creates a String variable called uName
    Dim uName As String
    
    'Accepting the value from the user and (right side statement)
    'assigning that value into the variable uName ('=' is an assignment operator)
    uName = InputBox("Please Enter Your Name")
    
    'Displaying the value storeed in the variable using Message Box
    MsgBox uName
