Adding a message box to Excel Macros

For a guide to how to edit macros for your own purposes, please click here.

In this video we outline how to add a Message box to macros in Microsoft excel. This is useful for outlining what a macro will execute before this occurs if posted before your macro code, or providing a message to let a user know a macro has run successfully if the message is posted after the macro code has run.


The code we used in this video is as follows.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

MsgBox (“This Macro will insert a new row”)

ActiveCell.EntireRow.Insert shift:=xlDown

Selection.Borders.Weight = xlThin

End Sub
