Sounds in Office 365


More of a question than  a discussion. In Excel 365 can you play a sound based on a cell's value without using a Macro or VBA? Thanks!

Excel itself cannot handle sound, you will not be able to avoid VBA here (as far as I know).

I can also be wrong about 365, but I can't think of any other way...maybe with Office Script.

Attached file with an example with VBA (as a precaution).


Hope I was able to help you with this information.

Thank you kindly, NikolinoDE, for taking the time to answer and give a brief explanation to my question. I can only guess that the rest of those that "viewed" my question felt that there was no value in posting a response. Not everyone is capable of understanding Excel the way that you guys do, henceforth, this platform. Thank you, so much, again.
Excellent quote from Socrates.
I am happy that I could help.
