Default insert date

Oh. . . o.K. I can do that, now I want to have the same code in each
worksheet of the workbook,correct? i.e. I already have the date code you
provided in there and have tried eliminating the end sub between them, seems
it does not want to work this way.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
'Macro will add Validation to a Dropdown list to any blank selected cell in
Column E
ActiveCell.Select
If ActiveCell.Column = 4 Then 'Limits macro action to column D
If ActiveCell.Value = "" Then 'Check to see if Target cell empty
ActiveCell.Select
With Selection.Validation
.Delete
.Add Type:=xl ValidateList, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop,
Operator:= xl Between , Formula1:="=$E$1:$E$50" 'E1:E50 is location of
the list
.IgnoreBlank = True
.InCellDropdown = True
.InputTitle = ""
.ErrorTitle = ""
.InputMessage = ""
.ErrorMessage = ""
.ShowInput = True
.ShowError = True
End With
Else
End If
Else
End If
End Sub

Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
'Automatically inserts today's date in cell in column C when selected
'if the cell was empty. Does not overwrite occupied cell.
If ActiveCell.Column = 3 Then 'Limits macro action to column C
If ActiveCell.Value = "" Then 'Check to see if Target cell empty
Selection.Value = Date 'Insert today's date in Target cell
End If
Else
End If
End Sub

I have been looking to learn more about this and have found some info about
this and found some info in "CONTEXTURES" web sight dealing with dynamic
lists that will update whenever something is added. Ilike that feature and am
also trying to figure this one out. I'll get eventually!

Goodmorning Chuck,
I have been trying to get the code you posted to work in my workbook but so
far have not. I did change the "1" to a "3", that's all. I pasted this code
into the "This workbook" with some other code I have:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
'Automatically inserts today's date in cell in column C when selected
'if the cell was empty. Does not overwrite occupied cell.

Sub Workbook_Open()
Columns("E:IV").Select
Selection.EntireColumn.Hidden = True
MsgBox "If you are entering a new waiver item, go ahead and enter it in the
next open line. When you are ready for a waiver number click in the empty box
and it will take you to the new waiver number generator; Follow the
instructions in the box there. To get a current date just select the empty
date box and hold down the Ctrl and ; keys, a new date will appear! When you
are done just click the RED X at the upper right to close, it will
automatically save your entries and the next time you need a number for any
waiver card the same steps will be taken: YOU NEED TO CLICK OK TO START

ThisWorkbook.Save
End Sub

I then placed it into an existing module 1above this code:

Sub Workbook_Open()
Columns("B:B").Select
Range("B3").Activate
ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection, Address:="WAIVER%20NO.xls", _
TextToDisplay:=""

End Sub\
again, no joy
I next created a new module and pasted there and still no luck.

I am just too much of a novice to do this in a timely manner; Any more help?
Thanks man. larry

The two "columnA" in the notations can be changed also, but are only
comments and do not affect the operation

A couple of questions.....
1-Are you wanting today's date inserted in an empty cell whenever it's
selected in a certain column?
2-What would you like to have happen to cells in that column being selected
that already contain a date, or some other value?

You can do nearly as good by just holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the
semicolon key.........this will insert today's date in the selected cell.

I'm on my way out right now, will have to pick any follow on up from homw
later......for now, try not only eliminating the ENDSUB between the two, but
also the sencond leading line of

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)

If that don't work, I'll have to look at it later.........

Ok Larry...........I checked it out a little more here at home..........the
only difference is that unless you want to have a different List on each
sheet, then you have to give the List a RangeName on one sheet.........I
used "MyList" so the code works with that but yu can change it if you want,
or use separate lists on each sheet, according to your
needs...........here's the code for both of the macros to work
together.........must be put in worksheet module of each sheet you want them
to work in.........

You're doing fine, it's just that this particular macro

goes in the Worksheet
module, not the Workbook and not a regular

sheet tab, then Viewcode, then in the small window on

the left at the top of
the editor window, choose Worksheet, then paste the code

in the large editor
window..........and if you copy/paste the macro out of

Goodmorning Chuck,
I have been trying to get the code you posted to work

in my workbook but so
far have not. I did change the "1" to a "3", that's

all. I pasted this code
into the "This workbook" with some other code I have:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As

Excel.Range)
'Automatically inserts today's date in cell in column

C when selected
'if the cell was empty. Does not overwrite occupied

cell.
If ActiveCell.Column = 3 Then 'Limits macro action to

column C
If ActiveCell.Value = "" Then 'Check to see if

Target cell empty
Selection.Value = Date 'Insert today's date

in Target cell
Else
End If
Else
End If



Sub Workbook_Open()
Columns("E:IV").Select
Selection.EntireColumn.Hidden = True
MsgBox "If you are entering a new waiver item, go

ahead and enter it in the
next open line. When you are ready for a waiver number

click in the empty box
and it will take you to the new waiver number

generator; Follow the
instructions in the box there. To get a current date

just select the empty
date box and hold down the Ctrl and ; keys, a new date

will appear! When you
are done just click the RED X at the upper right to

close, it will
automatically save your entries and the next time you

need a number for any
waiver card the same steps will be taken: YOU NEED TO

CLICK OK TO START
ENTERING DATA"
ThisWorkbook.Save
End Sub
noJoy

I then placed it into an existing module 1above this

code:

Sub Workbook_Open()
Columns("B:B").Select
Range("B3").Activate
ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection,

Address:="WAIVER%20NO.xls", _
TextToDisplay:=""

End Sub\
again, no joy
I next created a new module and pasted there and

still no luck.

I am just too much of a novice to do this in a timely

manner; Any more help?
Thanks man. larry

Actually, to change from column A to column C, you

would change the line
from:
If ActiveCell.Column = 1
To:
If ActiveCell.Column = 3

The two "columnA" in the notations can be changed

also, but are only
comments and do not affect the operation

Thanks CLR,
ans: yes and old dates remain.
Some of the folks usimng it can't seem to

remember the ctrl ; keys. Thanks
for the help


"CLR" wrote:

A couple of questions.....
1-Are you wanting today's date inserted in

an empty cell whenever it's
selected in a certain column?
2-What would you like to have happen to

cells in that column being selected
that already contain a date, or some other

value?

You can do nearly as good by just holding

down the Ctrl key and pressing the
semicolon key.........this will insert

today's date in the selected cell.

Default New Code

Hi Chuck,
I found this handy bit of code IN Contextures samples. I managed to tweat it
to do what I have been after.

IN MODULE 1 I HAVE:

Option Explicit

Sub Workbook_Open()
Columns("B:B").Select
Range("B3").Activate
ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection, Address:="WAIVER%20NO.xls", _
TextToDisplay:=""
End If
Else
End If
End Sub

NO SHEET 1OR2

IN SHEET 3 (LISTS)I HAVE:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Columns(1).Sort Key1:=Range("A1"), Order1:=xlAscending, _
Header:=xlGuess, OrderCustom:=1, _
MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom
End Sub

IN SHEET 4(86x36236; an auto number)
I HAVE:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
On Error Resume Next
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim i As Integer
Set ws = Worksheets("Lists")
If Target.Column = 3 And Target.Row 1 Then
If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(ws.Range("Na meList"),
Target.Value) Then
Exit Sub
Else
i = ws.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row + 1
ws.Range("A" & i).Value = Target.Value
ws.Range("NameList").Sort Key1:=ws.Range("A1"), _
Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlGuess, _
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, _
Orientation:=xlTopToBottom
End If
End If
End Sub

THIS WORKS GREAT IN AUTO UPDATING MY LIST BUT I CANNOT GET THE DATE ENTRY
CODE TO PLAY WITH THE OTHER CODE. I AM ASSUMING I NEED TO HAVE IT IN SHEET
MODULE 4 WHERE ALL THE WORK IS BEING DONE?
I WANT TO ADD THE FOLLOWING CODE YOU PROVIDED; HELP??

If ActiveCell.Column = 3 Then 'Limits macro action to column C
If ActiveCell.Value = "" Then 'Check to see if Target cell empty
Selection.Value = Date 'Insert today's date in Target cell
Else
End If
Else
End If
End Sub

Hi Larry..........

Just add my code as a complete separate macro below the other one you have
for Sheet4..........just copy what is below here and paste it in place below
the other macro after it's "END SUB"......

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
If ActiveCell.Column = 3 Then 'Limits macro action to column C
If ActiveCell.Value = "" Then 'Check to see if Target cell empty
Selection.Value = Date 'Insert today's date in Target cell
Else
End If

Default My newest setup

thanks Chuck,
I thought I had tried that but it is working pretty good now. I am getting
close to what I am after.
There are two issues I am searching to solve:

1: The first list(column A) on the Lists worksheet can contain any number
of items but the input worksheet (column C) where descrepencies are
annotated, will only go to row 17 and then no drop down will appear.
I tried to create a combo box and set the rows but this did not change the
limitation I am having.

2: The second list (column C) on the listss page is static and has a
rangename "Initials" ,it is finite and has a width of 8.43. On the input
sheet this drop down is o.k. except for the format, the column width is
pretty wide and I have not found the way to control this demension.
As Always, I appreciate your help and knowledge greatly. Larry

Hi Larry..........

Just add my code as a complete separate macro below the other one you have
for Sheet4..........just copy what is below here and paste it in place below
the other macro after it's "END SUB"......

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
If ActiveCell.Column = 3 Then 'Limits macro action to column C
If ActiveCell.Value = "" Then 'Check to see if Target cell empty
Selection.Value = Date 'Insert today's date in Target cell
Else
End If
Else
End If
End Sub

Hi Chuck,
I found this handy bit of code IN Contextures samples. I managed to tweat it
to do what I have been after.

IN MODULE 1 I HAVE:

Option Explicit

Sub Workbook_Open()
Columns("B:B").Select
Range("B3").Activate
ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection, Address:="WAIVER%20NO.xls", _
TextToDisplay:=""
End If
Else
End If
End Sub

NO SHEET 1OR2

IN SHEET 3 (LISTS)I HAVE:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Columns(1).Sort Key1:=Range("A1"), Order1:=xlAscending, _
Header:=xlGuess, OrderCustom:=1, _
MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom
End Sub

IN SHEET 4(86x36236; an auto number)
I HAVE:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
On Error Resume Next
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim i As Integer
Set ws = Worksheets("Lists")
If Target.Column = 3 And Target.Row 1 Then
If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(ws.Range("Na meList"),
Target.Value) Then
Exit Sub
Else
i = ws.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row + 1
ws.Range("A" & i).Value = Target.Value
ws.Range("NameList").Sort Key1:=ws.Range("A1"), _
Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlGuess, _
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, _
Orientation:=xlTopToBottom
End If
End If
End Sub

THIS WORKS GREAT IN AUTO UPDATING MY LIST BUT I CANNOT GET THE DATE ENTRY
CODE TO PLAY WITH THE OTHER CODE. I AM ASSUMING I NEED TO HAVE IT IN SHEET
MODULE 4 WHERE ALL THE WORK IS BEING DONE?
I WANT TO ADD THE FOLLOWING CODE YOU PROVIDED; HELP??

If ActiveCell.Column = 3 Then 'Limits macro action to column C
If ActiveCell.Value = "" Then 'Check to see if Target cell empty
Selection.Value = Date 'Insert today's date in Target cell
Else
End If
Else
End If
End Sub

Hi Larry.........
Well, this has gone beyond the point where I can understand it in my old
head without actualy seeing code or seeing it work...........if you want,
you can send a copy to my home addy with an explanation of what you are
supposed to see and where..........or whatever, and I will take a
look.........
My home addy is croberts at tampabay period rr period com,
making the obvious replacements.
