MsgBox variable help needed


Go to solution Solved by Melba23,

Hi all,
Need some help with line 3:

Local $var = InputBox("Macro", "Type macro to get value:")

MsgBox(0, "Macro Reference", "Macro: " & $var & @LF & $var)
;MsgBox(0, "Macro Reference", "Macro: @YEAR" & @LF & @YEAR)

If I run code and enter "@YEAR" in the inputbox I don't get the year.
How do I get the $var at the end to output the year? I want the output to look like line 4.

Use Execute: :)

$var = InputBox("Macro", "Type macro to get value:")
MsgBox(0, "Macro Reference", "Macro: " & Execute($var) & @LF & $var)
