Sending data from List Box - Msg box

I have some code that sends data from ListBox2.

The code is below

If the user selects data from ListBox1 and presses the cmd button by mistake, they get my msbox MsgBox "Updated" where in fact no data was sent to the spreadsheet.

Can that message box only appear if there is actually data sent.


Private Sub SendingData_Click()
Dim NextCell As Range
Dim arrList
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False

     Set NextCell = Workbooks("Match.xls").Worksheets("Mapping Table").Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1)

     NextCell.value = ListBox2.value
MsgBox "Updated"

End Sub

Try this, it assumes the listbox is single choice.

If ListBox1.ListIndex <> -1 Then MsgBox "Nothing Selected":Exit Sub

Open in new window

Why listbox1 and listbox2?

Did you try changing ListBox1 to ListBox2 in the code I posted?

If it comes to that, you can always do:

If (ListBox1.ListIndex <> -1) Or (ListBox2.ListIndex <> -1) Then MsgBox "Missing Selection":Exit Sub
