[Dba-office] Excet Table with VBA

I've done a of of VBA behind Excel spreadsheets but none of it of my own
invention - I've always used the macro recorder, recorded my keystrokes
for whatever I wanted, then cribbed the resulting code out of the macro

But I always had a row count so when I wanted to add a line I just used
Cells(Row,Col) method.  I'm not sure how I would have recorded an 'add
new row' in a macro.

Thanks Shamil -- it's similar to what I ended up with last night. Let's
compare! I think the only real difference is selecting the newly
row. I knew going in that Tables are internally, a list object, but I
anticipated more Table properties and methods, but nope... :) There
should be an Add method that lets you specify (optional) new values for
new rows! I expected that, but didn't find it.

I find Excel's object model confusing and I struggle to find the right
types and objects in VBA.

Thank you for helping! -- Susan H.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
 'Enter value into ListPerson column in Table1.

 Dim str As String
 Dim dbl As Double
 Dim rng As Range
 Dim oNewRow As ListRow

 str = TextBox1.Value

 Set rng =

 'Handle Match error when match not found.

 If Not IsError(Application.Match(str, rng, 0)) Then
 dbl = Application.Match(str, rng, 0)
 dbl = 0
 End If

 'If match is found, display duplicate error.
 'If match not found, add new record to Table1.
 If dbl <> 0 Then
 MsgBox "You can't enter duplicate values.", vbOKOnly, "Error"
 Exit Sub
 'Select Table1.
 Set oNewRow = Selection.ListObject.ListRows.Add(AlwaysInsert:=True)
 oNewRow.Range.Cells().Value = str
 Set oNewRow = Nothing
 End If

End Sub
