Good Day, Have another knowledge question. I have an excel worksheet. What i am trying to figure out is when the user is on a certain cell say for example on my sheet cell ag26 and hits the tab button, it will automatically initiate a macro. How do i go about setting this up. These are the cells i need this to happen on. ag26,ag28,ag30,ag32,ag34. Any help would be greatly appreciated

First, in your macro you have to check for activecell, it active cell is in range proceed, else exit the macro.
Second, Why to use Tab (key?)?
You can assign a Hotkey to a macro but it is a combination not only Tab.

'or in YourMacro (activated by hotkey):
sub MyMacro()
Select Case activecell.AddressLocal
Case "$AG$26", "$AG$28", "$AG$30", "$AG$32", "$AG$34"
   'do your stuff here
Case Else
   ' do nothing
End Select


end sub
