PC movies get two thumbs up for computer application training
Accounting and Finance
The accuracy of spreadsheets can be enhanced with easy-to-create graphic messages and input boxes that can provide reminders, explain various functions of the data tables, help users find and enter the right data and even refuse to let them proceed unless they follow a prescribed procedure. In short, those boxes serve as automated stand-ins for the spreadsheet creator, who can design them to appear whenever a user opens the spreadsheet. Message and input boxes are written in the Visual Basic for Applications language, which is built into Microsoft Excel. Instructions for creating message boxes and input boxes are presented.
