    Thanks for the suggestion and for the support of this feature. If you meant to vote for the Data Form, which is different than VBA UserForms, please change your vote to that suggestion instead. From reading the comments on this one, it seems that some clarification was needed.

    I updated the title and description for this one and we’ll continue to monitor for comments and votes.

    Here’s the link to the Data Form suggestion – https://excel.uservoice.com/forums/304933-excel-for-mac/suggestions/17930662-restore-data-form-functionality

    Do we build websites & databases, or Microsoft Excel's VBA UserForms? It was a decision we had to make.

    I still develop in Excel's VBA. It was the first language I learned to use, 19 years ago.

    I've moved as much as possible to Google Sheets. No VBA support for creating and editing UserForms was the straw that broke the camels back at our company.

    Since my team & I develop in Ruby, Python, and JavaScript, we choose Mac machines for the pre-installed Ruby, Python, etc. for developing the front-end of our websites & databases.

    The internet is pretty popular in 2019. In the USA, more businesses use the internet than Microsoft.

    Microsoft choosing this route, forced us to alternatives. The company is catering to the government(s) sector, that do not have to exchange goods & services for $. Apparently, Microsoft is all in on Asian governments.

    R.I.P.
