Default Create a simple input box

myNum = Application.InputBox("C")

Press ALT-11 to open VBEditor, search for InputBox.

The above will prompt the user with "Enter a number" and store the response
in the variable myNum.

Hi,

If you are in the spreadsheet, you might consider Data, Validation, List and
enter 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, 4 years as the Source. Personally, I would
enter the 1 year, 2 years,... in a range and reference the range in the
Source box. Then click the second tab, Input Message and type a message to
tell the user what you want them to do.
