Forms in Excel

Throwing up a resource for myself: a good how-to on creating VBA forms in Excel. We just switched to OSX and don't have the full complement of MS Office suite. I needed something simple that I would normally do in Access, even though that's more horsepower than necessary for the job.

Without Access, I went poking into OpenOffice and NeoOffice. Those apps look like a burden to install just to do a simple database. Enter this guide in Excel, and a companion how-to on adding command buttons. Yeah, I'm a novice VBAer, so I need the how-tos.

Welcome to Vietnam.

OpenOffice has a version of Access, I think it is called Database, that is very similar to Access.

Have you tried Linux?
