I have been reading several posts and cannot figure out how to do this. I want to use a function call in my code. In English, I want to do something like this:

. . . code

call get_the_name

. . . code

the answer is "the name"



public function get_the_name

userform1.show
the name = userform1.combobox1.value

end function

Select the data and press Alt+F1 to insert a default chart. You can change the default chart to any chart type
