Hi Experts,

I would like to request Experts help to create a macro for converting local time into GMT at column AB and AC at Time sheet based on this formula:

=IF(Z13="","",24+Z13-TIME(8,0,0))

The reason for macro is sometime user accidently deleted the formula at the cell and that create big mess. Hope Experts can help me to create this feature.  I have attached the workbook for Experts perusal.

Hi Theva...

Attached is your file with a code that will add the formula you need when doing a change in any cell in the range of your template (columns Z and AA)

Hope it helps.
Roberto.

Hi Roberto,

I need your help. Currently I'm having the same "Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)" in my actual workbook. How to combine your solution with the attached script. Hope you will consider this request.
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
On Error GoTo errHandler

    Application.EnableEvents = False

    If Target.Count > 1 Then GoTo finished

    If Target.Column = 4 And Target.Row >= 13 And Target.Row <= 37 Then
        UserForm1.Show
        On Error Resume Next
        Target.Value = CDate(formDate) & " " & CDate(formTime)
        On Error GoTo 0
    Else
    End If
    
finished:
    Application.EnableEvents = True
    Exit Sub
    
errHandler:
    MsgBox Err.Number & " - " & Err.Description
    Resume finished
    
End Sub

Theva,

I'm not sure, but you could try this:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
On Error GoTo errHandler

    Application.EnableEvents = False

    If Target.Count > 1 Then GoTo finished

    If Target.Column = 4 And Target.Row >= 13 And Target.Row <= 37 Then
        UserForm1.Show
        On Error Resume Next
        Target.Value = CDate(formDate) & " " & CDate(formTime)
        Range("AB" & Target.Row).FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(RC[-2]="""","""",24+RC[-2]-TIME(8,0,0))"
        Range("AC" & Target.Row).FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(RC[-2]="""","""",24+RC[-2]-TIME(8,0,0))"
        On Error GoTo 0
    Else
    End If
    
finished:
    Application.EnableEvents = True
    Exit Sub
    
errHandler:
    MsgBox Err.Number & " - " & Err.Description
    Resume finished
    
End Sub 

Open in new window

Hi,

Shows ambiguous error. Is that possible to run this procedure from “Private Sub Workbook”?

Hi Theva,

I'm triying to reproduce the error here, but is working fine...
It place the time in column D (4) in the format 0:00:00 0:00:00
And also place the formula you need in columns AB and AC
The problem could be with the Userform1 code...

Here is the code to use from the Private sub workbook... but I'm not sure it is going to work if the changes in Column Z are made by code...give it a try:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
With Sheets("Time")
Dim RAN As Range, RAN2 As Range
Set RAN = Range("Z13:AA36")
If Intersect(Target, RAN) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Range("AB" & Target.Row).FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(RC[-2]="""","""",24+RC[-2]-TIME(8,0,0))"
Range("AC" & Target.Row).FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(RC[-2]="""","""",24+RC[-2]-TIME(8,0,0))"
End With
End Sub

Open in new window


If the problem continue, post your file with all codes and userform to check the problem.

Regards.
Roberto.
