Westover Movie Database VBA

Executive Summary:

Movies have become one of the biggest sources of entertainment in today’s society. They allow an individual to escape reality for a time and experience the impossible. In the past, the best movie experience was at the movie theater. Home solutions were enjoyable, but not very similar. However, as technology has advanced and the prices of home theater equipment have steadily declined, many people have purchases a home entertainment solution that, while not as impressive as a movie theater, can be comparable.

With the home technology in place to adequately supplement movie theaters, people have begun to expand their collections of movies. In fact some have even become such avid movie fans that they have begun to collect an extra-ordinary amount of movies, constantly building their home collect. With the changing formats from VHS to DVD to Blu-Ray, some have even purchased duplicates of their favorite movies in the latest format. The problem that this creates, is that someone who has purchased so many movies, often times begins to forget what they own, sometimes resulting in duplicates.

This project is designed to assist avid home movie fans to log their movie collection in an excel sheet. Instead of having to manually input information such as the title, the director, the rating, the year, etc., they only have to type in the name, and the program does the rest of the work. In addition, it pulls down a synopsis of the movie and the movie poster.
