Assign a Macro to a Button Form Controls

As luck would have it, Excel offers a set of form controls designed specifically for creating user interfaces directly on spreadsheets. There are several different types of form controls, from buttons (the most commonly used control) to scrollbars.

The idea behind using a form control is simple. You place a form control on a spreadsheet and then assign a macro to it — that is, a macro you’ve already recorded. When a macro is assigned to the control, that macro is executed, or played, when the control is clicked.

Take a moment to create a button for the HelloWorld macro you created earlier. Here’s how:

1. Click the Insert button under the Developer tab.

3. Click the location where you want to place your button. When you drop the button control onto your spreadsheet, the Assign Macro dialog box activates and asks you to assign a macro to this button.
