Hi.
My spreadsheet is locking every time Sheet_Change event code runs when I change a cell
Excel end up failing. The two offending lines are
  Sh.Cells(6, 6) = oCountNew
   Sh.Cells(8, 6) = oCountUsed



Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
    Dim oCount_New As Integer
    Dim oCount_Used As Integer
   
    If Target.Column = 6 And Sh.Name <> "SUMMARY" Then
     
        oCountUsed = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("F22:F1000"), "U")
        oCountNew = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("F22:F1000"), "N")
        Sh.Cells(6, 6) = oCountNew
        Sh.Cells(8, 6) = oCountUsed
       
    End If
   
End Sub

Since the code is changing cells it calls itself.

To stop that happening add this at the start,
Application.EnableEvents = False

Open in new window

and this at the end.
Application.EnableEvents = True

Open in new window


It's important that you add that at the end, if you don't no other events will be triggered after the code is finished.
