Hi everyone.

 

I decided to learn a little bit of programming by trying to use Excel 2010 to make a quiz game. This will be easy to expand upon as I learn more.

 

At this point I am trying to make a page where you can enter players names, and check boxes for preferences like categories and such. This will have to be stored and referenced throughout the game.

 

If you would be so kind as to offer your opinion on how this can be solved. Do I make the 'save' button in the player detail sheet make a copy of the worksheet for every player while deleting the info in the 'add player' sheet?

 

Pointers will be greatly appreciated, thanks.

I would store player information in a player table, one record per player, columns for each bit of information.

@Jan Karel Pieterse Thanks, I'll look into that.
