Basic question about Excel Visual Basic

I am in Excel and need a macro to evaluate a date that a user input into a cell that I've named "CarOne". If the date is not at least 910 days old, then I need a message box to appear which says "You have to wait until <X>" where <X> is a date 910 days after the date in CarOne.

Thanks!

If Range("Carone") + 910 > Now() Then
        MsgBox ("You have to wait until ") & Format(Range("Carone") + 910, "dd/mm/yyyy")
    End If

dear carlosab,

If the macro should be executed automaticaly when entering the date in carone you can do two things,

A) put on your sheet a combo box where the carone date has to be put. Use the Private Sub ComboBox1_Change() to look for changes in the combo box.
B) use the Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) to look for changes in your cell and then execute the macro.


If you need an example of both possibilitys just ask and I will send you a excel...

Kind regards

Eric
