i have downloaded vbe 2010 and thats where im pretty much stuck . i do logic programing this type of code is killing me . is their an easier way . this is what i got , an excel spreadsheet runs my project .all i need is access to cell B1 to input a text string , and access to cell E1 so i can see what my value is , thats it , two little windows on a vbe screen . i just dont like the look of the spreadsheet when i convert to an exe. so i figured vbe screen would cover it up . am i wrong as hell or what
