Introducing the Automated Data Entry, a very flexible and smart form for the users, why would I say flexible? Users can choose their desired header from their table source eg. “Name”, “Age”, “Address”, “Birthday” etc. see image below.
|Choose your Header|
From InputBox highlight or select your Column Header then click OK, you’ll see the data entry form like the example above.
You can write anything from the TextBox generated which is subject to your header and ADD or EDIT your data but, what is the special feature of this form? The special feature is when you click the OPTIONS Button.
You’ll see the Header, Object, and Validation. The HEADER is your header in your table, while object and validation are subject into different types. From OBJECT you can use Textbox or ComboBox(dropdown).
In Textbox-type anything can be written (except when validated) while Dropdown or Combobox, the users limit their writing (when you filldropdown).
Validation-type there are 4 types of validation that can be used. “General, Number, Date, Time”
You can validate or limit your USERS for writing anything:
General – anything can be written
Number – only numbers can be written (eg. 1,2,3,1.2,.01)
Date – only date can be written (eg. 1/23/1993, January 23, 1993)
Time – only time can be written (1:00 PM, 13:00)
Close the Option and close the Data Entry Form to take effect your new settings.
Before writing your data please fill first your Drop Down button from your source of data. To fill it, click the “Fill Drop Down” button and highlight or select your list of data. Example below.
|Fill the Drop-Down Button|
You are now ready to write securely just click the ADD button when you finished your data.
Before selecting your header always insert “ID” all caps (not “Id”, “iD”, “id” but “ID” case-sensitive) as your very first header in your table to avoid errors. Because ID column is your guide to write your data smoothly and organized.
Always create a table (go to Insert, then click Table) for your data to prevent some abnormalities or errors in the process.

If you’ve got trouble in security for macros, you have to allow or enable the settings for macro to run the code.
(File –> Option –> Trust Center –>Trust Center Settings –> Macro Settings –> Check “Enable all macros”)
Another thing, since this file came from the internet, so the Microsoft office blocked for certain reasons.
Please open the “Data _Entry _Form_v1.2*.xlsb” select “View” tab then click unhide select the macro file click OK. You will see a pop-up block, click “Enable editing”, you can hide it, then save and exit. Restart the excel files.
