    Excel Function Tooltip

    Hello,

    I have a number of functions in VBA, and I'd like to have a tooltip to be displayed while entering the function. For example, entering CTRL +SHIFT + A works well, but I'd like to share the functions with other users, not always familiar with VBA (Alt + F11).
    Also, how can a "proper" help message be created for such module with functions.
    Any help would be much appriciated.

    For example, for function:

    =Discount_Factor(rate,n_period)


    Thanks,
    Marcin

    AFAIK, this isn't possible in VBA, though some people have tried a C# solution with moderate success.

    You can add descriptions to the function dialog though (the fx button), which may serve your needs well enough.

    Example:

    I'm interested in starting a career working with VBA, if anyone knows of any opportunities!

    Run the code. Next time you use your function, press the Fx button. You'll see what I showed above.
