Create Excel Data Form Quickly with VBA

How to create Excel data form quickly with VBA. Creating a data form in Excel is easy. You create a data form that has many buttons like  ‘New’, ‘Delete’, ‘Restore’, ‘Find Previous’, ‘Find Next’, ‘Criteria’ and ‘Close’. We can therefore use the data form dialog box to view, add, delete or change a record in our Excel worksheet data. We can utilize the data form to also to find specific records using criteria by clicking on the criteria button. If we enter or edit data on our data form, Excel automatically updates the data in the Excel worksheet.

Welcome to! My aim is to help you learn MS Excel including VBA. I always felt that a good way to learn something was to find solutions to problems in that domain. That is why I share these Excel videos with you. Mostly these are questions asked during my corporate training sessions. I've been training individuals and companies in computers since 1991.
