Is it possible to make a sound if the msgbox appears?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If [ge141] <> [ge142] Then
MsgBox "Deze invoer is onjuist"
End If

End Sub

You could use MsgBox "Deze invoer is onjuist",vbCriticalI believe it uses the sounds that are declared within your windows OS.

Variation with the music you want. You can record your own wav files if you want.Option Explicit
Declare Function sndPlaySound32 Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" _
(ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long
Sub PlaySound()
Dim v_mysound As String
v_mysound = "c:\data\mysounds\tada.wav"
If Application.CanPlaySounds Then
Call sndPlaySound32(v_mysound, 1)
MsgBox "Give me some music ..."
Else
MsgBox "Sorry no music"
End If
End SubCharlize

It is not that, it works fine triggered by the change event. Sure you don't have sound muted?

GerPrivate Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If [ge141] <> [ge142] Then
Call PlaySound
End If
End Suband PlaySound is located in a module.

ps.: maybe check your cables, muted or not, volume, ... do you have a soundcard ?

variation :
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If [ge141] <> [ge142] Then
Call PlaySound("c:\data\mysounds\tada.wav")
End If
End Sub
in a module you place :Declare Function sndPlaySound32 Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" _
(ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long
Sub PlaySound(v_mysound As String)
If Application.CanPlaySounds Then
Call sndPlaySound32(v_mysound, 1)
MsgBox "Give me some music ..."
Else
MsgBox "Sorry no music"
End If
End Sub

The path to the sound file in the worksheet didn't work. if i put it in the module it works fine.
(worksheet)
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If [ge119] <> [ge120] Then
Call PlaySound
End If

End Sub

(module)
Option Explicit
Declare Function sndPlaySound32 Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" _
(ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long
Sub PlaySound()
Dim v_mysound As String
v_mysound = "j:\zuid\zml\vpm\jaarplanner vpm\52.wav"
If Application.CanPlaySounds Then
Call sndPlaySound32(v_mysound, 1)
MsgBox "Deze invoer is niet correct"
Else
MsgBox "Sorry no music"
End If
End Sub
