How can I have excel prompt the user to input data. I want to have the user to be prompted for 3-4 question then it creates a answer depending on the calculations in excel.

Excel Facts

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Shaners,

Just off the top, you could use "comments" or "data validation". Or you could have instructions on the worksheet itself.

You could implement a Text Box via VBA, i.e:

Sub Prompter()
Dim Message, Title, Default, MyValue
Message = "Enter a value between 1 and 3" ' Set prompt.
Title = "InputBox Demo" ' Set title.
Default = "1" ' Set default.
' Display message, title, and default value.
MyValue = InputBox(Message, Title, Default)
End Sub
