View Full Version : Select or msgbox last cell edited by code?

Hi Simon,

I am stumped with a little problem. I've tried to solve this myself but I am still learning.

When I add an entry I need a msgbox to display 'Entry Added' and I also need the screen to update and goto the last added entry so I can confirm visually that the entry has been added. I can get it to work on sheet2 '2008-2009' but not on the first sheet. Also If I am further down the screen than the entry that has been added, the screen will not goto the last updated cell.


Here's the code you did:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

sheet1.Unprotect Password:="machine"
sheet2.Unprotect Password:="machine"

Dim Sht As Worksheet
Dim rFound As Range, dFound As Range
Dim rRow As Long, dCol As Long
Dim Rng As Range
Dim OriginalSheet As String

OriginalSheet = ActiveSheet.Name

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
For Each Sht In Sheets

If Sht.Name = "Sheet1" Then GoTo Nxt
On Error Resume Next

Set dFound = Cells.Find(What:=Me.DTPicker1.Value, After:=Range("C22"), LookIn:=xlValues, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _
False, SearchFormat:=False)

On Error GoTo 0
If Not dFound Is Nothing Then
dCol = dFound.Column


MsgBox "Date Not Found on Sheet " & Sht.Name
GoTo Nxt

End If
On Error Resume Next

Set rFound = Range("C" & dFound.Row - 1 & ":C" & Range("C" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row).Find(What:=Me.ComboBox1.Value, _
After:=Range("C" & dFound.Row - 1), LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _
False, SearchFormat:=False)
On Error GoTo 0
If Not rFound Is Nothing Then
rRow = rFound.Row


MsgBox "Name Not Found On Sheet" & Sht.Name

GoTo Nxt

End If
Cells(rRow, dCol).Value = "RECEIVED"
Cells(rRow, dCol).Interior.ColorIndex = 10


Next Sht

Application.ScreenUpdating = True

sheet1.Protect Password:="machine"
sheet2.Protect Password:="machine"

End Sub

Place this immediately before Nxt: in the code
msgbox Cells(rRow, dCol).address
Cells(rRow, dCol).select

Thanks for that Simon, but that adjustment makes the msgbox pop up three times and the screen does not update and goto the cell just modified?

However, if I put the code at the very end before the End Sub but before the sheet1.Protect Password:="machine"
Sheet2.Protect Password:="machine", it all works fine, until I enter a wrong date or name and then it goes to the debugger?

Also How would I change the message box to display for example: "Entry Added in Cell D254"
