I have a file on which information about reports is entered every day. I want to change it so the people entering the information can only see the name of the fields and the information they are currently entering. So, basically what I want to do is have all the fields sort of like a form and at the end have a submit button. When the button is pressed, I want the information to be sent to sheet2 (supposing the form is on sheet1). I know this requires programming some VBA code, which I'm not very good at. Can anyone help me?

As a start, look at using "Form" from the "Data" menu. It may give you what you want and avoid the use of VBA.

Something like it, but how does the information gets sent to sheet2?

It doesn't - under this method, you would have one sheet with the data and that's it. The form will sit over the top of that sheet (no need for a separate form)

As you update the "form", the data will be automatically updated on the data sheet.
