    Creating Note Organiser

    Hello everyone, this is my first post here so please be gentle .

    The workbook I plan on creating will function as follows:

    On the first sheet I will be able to type a note in one cell, a title in another and several tags in 1-6 other cells.
    When I click a button the data I have entered with be transfered to sheet2 in a single row for each submission.
    There will be a search cell on sheet1 which will search through the tags on sheet2 and return submissions that have the tag that I have searched for.

    I'm completely new to the programming side of excel but I have done a bit of programming in the past. This means that although I don't know the syntax and structure of the programming I am familiar with the logic structure of programming languages.

    My question then boils down to:
    What is the best way to implement this and what are the most likely commands that I will need to use?

    Where is a good place to learn how to do this myself?

    Additional information that isn't really important:

    The reason I'm doing this is because in my workplace I am not allowed to install any software but I need a note managing tool. Using Excel to program something like this is the only workaround I can think of.

    Hi mirome and welcome to the forum.

    I'd start by looking at what has already been created. Office has templates that might be just what you need.

    Look at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/te...in=FX101741961

    I searched for "Notes" but you can search for any term and look at only excel templates if you like.
    One test is worth a thousand opinions.

    Thanks Marvin,
    I've had a look at the templates but none (that I have found) are really what I'm looking for.
    Unless you are suggesting looking at each template just in case it has a function that I could use, in which case I didn't have time to do that just yet.

    You might be able to use the Contacts Form example that demonstrates how to create a sheet to act as a form then copy inputs to the data sheet
    Hope that helps.
