Here are some examples on how to use the MsgBox-function:

MsgBox "The job is done !" 
' messagebox with text and OK-button
MsgBox "The job is done !", vbInformation
' messagebox with text, OK-button and an information-icon
MsgBox "The job is done !", vbCritical
' messagebox with text, OK-button and a warning-icon
MsgBox "The job is done !", vbInformation, "My Title"
' messagebox with text, OK-button, information-icon and a custom title text


Answer = MsgBox("Do you want to continue ?", vbYesNo)
' messagebox with YES- and NO-buttons, 
' the result is an integer, the constants are named vbYes and vbNo.
Answer = MsgBox("Do you want to continue ?", vbYesNo + vbQuestion)
' messagebox with YES- and NO-buttons and a question-icon
Answer = MsgBox("Do you want to continue ?", vbYesNo + vbQuestion, "My Title")
' messagebox with YES- and NO-buttons, 
' question-icon and a custom title text
Answer = MsgBox("Do you want to continue ?", vbYesNo + 256 + vbQuestion, "My Title")
' messagebox with YES- and NO-buttons, question-icon and a custom title text, 
' the NO-button is default
Answer = MsgBox("Do you want to continue ?", vbOKCancel, "My Title")
' messagebox with OK- and CANCEL-buttons, the result is an integer, 
' the constants are named vbOK og vbCancel.
The result from the MsgBox-function can be stored in a variable. The variable can be of type Integer. This variable may be used later in the macro code like this:

Answer = MsgBox("Do you want to continue ?", vbOKCancel, "My Title")
If Answer = vbCancel Then Exit Sub ' the macro ends if the user selects the CANCEL-button
Or like this:

If MsgBox("Do you want to continue ?", vbOKCancel, "My Title") = vbCancel then Exit Sub
