I need to find a way to active a message box based on several variables

First is ActiveCell.Offset (0,-31) value is between 0255-0258 or 0555-0559 or 0855-0859, or 1155-1159 or 1455-1459 or 1755-1759, or 2055-2059, or 2355-2359.  And if ActiveCell.Offset (0,-35) is blank.  Then activate Message Box "Please enter the data"

Hi sandramac,

Better ask al these excel questions in the Office section but here we go

Sub CheckInput()

Rem declare variables
Dim intCheckVal As Integer
Dim i As Integer, j As Integer

Rem check if cell to check is numeric else leave sub
If Not IsNumeric(ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1)) Then Exit Sub
intCheckVal = ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1)
Rem set start values
i = 255
j = 259
Rem loop till the highest range to check
While Not i > 2359
  If Not (i < intCheckVal And intCheckVal < j) Then
    i = i + 300
    j = j + 300
Rem exit because the value was found in one of the ranges
    Exit Sub
  End If
Rem show the box
MsgBox "Please enter the data"
End Sub

this proc assumes you're using integer values for the ranges

Select Case ActiveCell.Offset(0,-31).Value
  Case 0255 To 0258, 0555 To 0559, 0855 To 0859, 1155 To 1159, 1455 To 1459, 1755 To 1759, 2055 To 2059, 2355 To 2359
    If activecell.offset(0,-31).text = vbNullString Then
      Msgbox "Please enter the data"

End Select
