excel macro comand

In Quatro, you can move to a cell through the use of a macro, pause until a keyboard entry is made, and when you press the enter key, the macro will proceed. This is done with the {?} macro feature.
I have not been able to find out if Excel has this ablity. My macro will do everything I need EXCEPT pause for keyboard entry.
Is there a good book that will cover the Excel macro comands in greater depth than clippy.

Hi Jim,
Let me try this reply again...got booted off the network in middle of last reply. Try EXCEL POWER PROGRAMMING WITH VBA by John Walkenbach.
I'm a former Lotus macro writer struggling with VBA.

Here is a simple Code for obtaining user input:

Range("A1") = InputBox("Enter the Number")

This will pause the macro, ask user to enter a number, and enter the number in cell A1 of active worksheet.

Good luck
Dexter
