    Question Unanswered: Is This Even Possible??? Please Help!

    HI EVERYONE! I HAVE A SORT OF COMPLICATED QUESTION... FOR ME ANYWAY!

    I WANT TO CREATE A FORM WHERE I CAN ADD EITHER A BUTTON OR TYPE A SPECIFIC LETTER TO GET THE PROGRAM TO PROMPT ME FOR A NUMBER THAT IT WILL THEN CALCULATE TO A SUM AT THE BOTTOM OF MY PAGE. FOR EXAMPLE. ITS A SIGN IN SHEET AND IF I SELECT A BUTTON OR TYPE IN THE LETTER "N" IT WILL PROMPT THE USER TO TYPE THE AMOUNT OF A "NO SHOW FEE" AT THAT POINT WHEN I ENTER LETS SAY 5.00 IT WILL ADD THAT NUMBER TO MY SUM AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.
    THE SECOND PART OF THE QUESTION IS... HOW DO I MAKE A BUTTON OR SHOULD I USE A DROP DOWN LIST?

    IS ALL THIS EVEN POSSIBLE WITH EXCEL????????????????

    THX ALL

    Howdy, and welcome to the board.

    Yes, this is possible. Can you provide a sample workbook with some data in it, including what you want in the dropdown box?

    BTW, it is much better NOT to use all capital letters - very hard to read.

    The poor, poor shift (or caps) key!
    What did he ever do to you?

    Have a look at recorded macros... I understand that they fire on keypress.
