Worksheet Change Event Troubles

Hi,

I am using VBA to control worksheet event (please see vba in attached file)

However, the VBA is not locking/unlocking cell F12 when a choice is selected from F8.

Any help is appreicated on why this is not locking. Password is 1234

Thanks!

Hi, Shanan212.

The problem is that F12 is merged with G12. So try replacing the following two lines (in both places)...
.Locked = True
.FormulaHidden = True

Open in new window

... by...
Range("F12:G12").Locked = True
Range("F12:G12").FormulaHidden = True

Open in new window

***EDIT*** Perhaps simply unmerging the cells would be better? (BTW, for "VARIOUS SKIDS", do you mean the value in F12 to be cleared without doing anything with it?)

Regards,
Brian.

Thanks that works!

Now the problem is that the code clears the formula init (when changed to Various Skids) and enters NULL.

This makes the box unaccessible to user entry...any suggestions?

Also when a 'Single Skid' option is chosen,

when you enter values in height, length, etc, the boxes' focus is acting weird as well.

Let me know if I should ask these as another question

Thanks!

I've solved it by using

.HasFormula to check for formula and clear the box only once.

Thanks for the clear answer and your time!

Shanan212,

(1) "This makes the box unaccessible to user entry"
Not for me. Did you unmerge the cells or change the code? Please try attached  - I've tidied up the Ranges (there was another one I missed). I've also (temporarily) commented out the three "On Error Resume Next" lines and the clearing of F12.

(2) "the boxes' focus is acting weird"
Commenting out the ".Select" seemed to fix this.

(3) "Let me know if I should ask these as another question"
Doing fine so far!
