    Push button to add new row of data using data forms

    I am writing an excel workbook to keep track of a local festival's finances. This workbook is used for logging all invoices and expenses.

    What I would like to do is set up a table or list of all invoices etc. Rather than an empty table below which doesn't look good, I'd like to insert a button labeled 'Add new item' which once pressed will create a new row underneath the headings, and then a new row under that and so on, rather than filling in the cells manually. I'd also like a dialogue box to appear once the 'add new item' button is clicked with boxes for date, who to, paid etc etc so that the recently added row is completed automatically. This is a bit like data forms, only it is intended for novice users so I'd like it if it was macro driven so that the user doesn't have to play around with the excel ribbon.

    If anyone can solve my query it would sure help out a lot.

    Your post does not comply with Rule 1 of our Forum RULES. Your post title should accurately and concisely describe your problem, not your anticipated solution. Use terms appropriate to a Google search. Poor thread titles, like Please Help, Urgent, Need Help, Formula Problem, Code Problem, and Need Advice will be addressed according to the OP's experience in the forum: If you have less than 10 posts, expect (and respond to) a request to change your thread title. If you have 10 or more posts, expect your post to be locked, so you can start a new thread with an appropriate title.
    To change a Title on your post, click EDIT then Go Advanced and change your title, if 2 days have passed ask a moderator to do it for you.
    Hope that helps.

    Well perhaps you could be a little less ambiguous with your answer.

    Nothing ambiguous about the Forum Rules, nor the answer. use correct format titles or don't post.
