Hi all,

I have the standard message box in my code

msgbox ("Continue?")

How do I include with with a cancel option - I want to give the user the option to abort the VBA script if they haven't completed a task.

Thanks,

J

Press Alt+F11 from Windows Excel to open the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) editor.
Check out the second argument of MsgBox in VBA help, it gives you a list of options to choose, i.e.

MsgBox "Continue", vbOKCancel
will display both "OK" and "Cancel"

Here is a little script that displays how you can handle the reply:
Code:
    Dim myReply
    myReply = MsgBox("Continue", vbOKCancel)
    If myReply = vbOK Then
        MsgBox "Continuing on..."
    Else
        MsgBox "Process cancelled"
    End If
