Default Insert date in macro

Happy new year to all!

I recorded this macro some time ago, the cell A5 is selected at the end of
the macro,
ready for the user to insert today's date.
How do I edit the macro to insert today's date into cell A5, when it is run.

I do not want to use =TODAY() as this would change the date, daily,
(does that make sense)?

Many thanks

Hi George

Sure. It is very simple:

Range("A5").Value = Date

You can also use Now (for date and time) and Time (for time without date)

HTH. Best wishes Harald

I suppose it would help if I included the macro!

Range("A5:G5").Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown
Range("B3:F3").Select
Selection.Copy
Range("B5:F5").Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=
_
False, Transpose:=False
Range("B3:F3").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Range("B5").Select
Selection.FormatConditions.Delete
Selection.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:= _
"=IF(B5B6,TRUE)"
Selection.FormatConditions(1).Font.ColorIndex = 5
Selection.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:= _
"=IF(B5<B6,TRUE)"
Selection.FormatConditions(2).Font.ColorIndex = 3
Selection.Copy
Range("B5:F5").Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlFormats, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=
_
False, Transpose:=False
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Range("A5").Select
End Sub

For efficiency, you should take out as much physical selection as poss.
Forex, replace the last 2 lines with:

Range("B3:F3").Copy

Thanks for that, have replaced as you have indicated, and it does run more
smoothly!

As I said, this macro was *recorded*, something even *I* can do!
Editing is another matter!

Thanks again.

It's easier than most people think. Here's a couple of pointers that I
use heavily.

For single statements just delete the Select and Selection. fragments
and merge the rest of the 2 statements. For multiple statements
enclose everything in a 'With' clause and delete all references to
'Selection'. [While they do work in 99.9+% of the cases, there are a
few instances where the mechanical application of the rules doesn't
work. And, it is also possible to better leverage the XL object model.
For some examples see 'Beyond the macro recorder' (http://www.tushar-
mehta.com/excel/vba/beyond_the_macro_recorder/index.htm)]

OK, so let's apply these tranformations to your code. The first three
actions a

Range("A5:G5").Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown
Range("B3:F3").Select
Selection.Copy
Range("B5:F5").Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, _
Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _
False, Transpose:=False

These can be replaced by using the first rule. Delete the
'Select...Selection.' part to get:

Range("A5:G5").Insert Shift:=xlDown
Range("B3:F3").Copy
Range("B5:F5").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, _
Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _
False, Transpose:=False

Further down, the code does a bunch of things to cell B5:
Range("B5").Select
Selection.FormatConditions.Delete
Selection.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:= _
"=IF(B5B6,TRUE)"
Selection.FormatConditions(1).Font.ColorIndex = 5
Selection.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:= _
"=IF(B5<B6,TRUE)"
Selection.FormatConditions(2).Font.ColorIndex = 3
Selection.Copy

The With clause rule applies here. The result is:
with Range("B5")
.FormatConditions.Delete
.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:= _
"=IF(B5B6,TRUE)"
.FormatConditions(1).Font.ColorIndex = 5
.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:= _
"=IF(B5<B6,TRUE)"
.FormatConditions(2).Font.ColorIndex = 3
.Copy
end with

And, that leaves one statement for you to transform:
Range("B5:F5").Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlFormats, Operation:=xlNone,
SkipBlanks:=
_
False, Transpose:=False

Many thanks for your time, I will have to study your changes
and see if I can understand them!

I think Tushar's post was hit by line wrap:

Worked ok.
