# Custom Button Creation

1. ## Custom Button Creation

Hi, I have a simple function to perform, but lack the know-how. Here's what I need...

I have an individual cell that contains a numerical value that remains constant - lets say it's 40. I would like to just select that cell (is there a way to make it a button of some sorts) and then have it's value automatically added (yes just added) to another numerical value in a different cell (this cell will be a value of, lets say 70, and that would be a value that I enter and can change at will). I would like the sum of those to be shown in different cell.

Thats all - I just don't know how to do it - excel noob. Yes, I know how to add those numbers in my head and enter it in the cell I want, but this will get more complex and expanded, I just need a basic start. Thanks!

Thank you,
Justin

This doesn't require VBA programming, which is forum you posted in.

for discussion:

Cell A1 = 40
Cell B1 = 70
Cell C1 formula: =A1+B1 or =SUM(A1:B1)

The value of cell C1 will update per whatever changes in values are made in A1 or B1.

Did I misss the point here or was your task just this simple?

Yes it's that simple but what I would like to do is turn (in your example) cell A1 into a "button" which when pressed will generate the sum calculation in cell C1.

The reason for this is because I'd like to add additional selectable "buttons". For instance, if we add another cell to this, A2, and it's value is 50. When I press our "button" (which is a separate button from cell A1) I would like the value in cell C1 to change.

So...

Cell A1 = 40 (this cell I'd like to be a "button", or "selection" and this value will not change)
Cell A2 = 50 (similar to cell A1)

Cell B1 = 70 (this will be any numerical value I'd like, no special function here)

Cell C1 = A1+B1 (when "button" A1 is pressed), or A2+B1 (when "button" A2 is pressed)

Thank you for your help, I see that I didn't explain my original functions very well.

Best,
Justin

I fail to see what you are trying to accomplish with this approach, but here is the basic code. I assumed you want to clear cell C1 each time you click the button - advise if this is not the case.

You will need to create two buttons from the Forms Tool Box and assign the code to the respective button. The code needs to copied and pasted into a standard VBA module.
