I have a spreadsheet and each time I open it it displays the current date.  I'd like a command or small macro that places in the cell below the current date the date the spreadsheet was last worked on.  If I use a simple copy/paste, it too will auto update each time I open the sheet.  Just to be clear, when the sheet is closed and then reopened a new date time will be established and the old one moved into the "date spreadsheet was last worked on".

Hard or easy?

Use the following code


Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
   Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Value = Date
End Sub

Open in new window

Oh and of course change "sheet1" and "A1" to reflect the sheetname and cell that you want the date stored in.

Neilsr,

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong..... I cut/pasted your code into the Company_Profile tab in the Developer's tab, changed the spreadsheet name and the cell reference and saved/closed the workbook.  When I opened it....nothing.  I'm running 2010 if that makes any difference and I do have macros enabled............ any ideas?
