I have an excel spreadsheet and I want to be able to input a number into a cell , which on entering will automatically divide it by 100, without using a visible formula.  This would apply to a range of cells (A1 to A50)

Copy and Paste the following code into your sheets code module. (In Excel hit ALT-F11, then double click the name of your sheet)

This will divide the cells from A1 to A50 by 100

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim Cell As Range
Static bCritical As Boolean

    On Error GoTo err_Handler
    If Not bCritical Then
        bCritical = True
        Exit Sub
    End If
    For Each Cell In Target.Cells
        If Cell.Column = 1 And (Cell.Row >= 1 And Cell.Row <= 50) Then
            Cell.Value = CDec(Cell.Value) / 100
        End If
    Next Cell
    bCritical = False
End Sub
