We will then concatenate the message “Welcome to my spreadsheet” with the value in the MyName variable. This joins the message in the message box with a value the user enters in an input box. Sub Greeting() Dim MyName As String MyName = InputBox("What's your name?") MsgBox "Hi There " & MyName & "." End Sub • Press F5 to run the macro www.bluepecan.co.uk
