2. In the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, copy and paste the below VBA code into the Code window.

Notes:

1). In the code, “A1:B10” means that message box will pop up when click on any cell of this range.

2). “You have selected cell ” and “Please input data” are the displayed content of the message box.

Please change them as you need.
