Hi,

I would be very grateful if you could suggest how I can use VBA to ascertain if the last character in a cell is a number (0 through to 9).

Many thanks in advance

Select the cell and run this macro

Sub testlastnum()
If Right(Selection, 1) <= "9" And Right(Selection, 1) >= "0" Then MsgBox "yes" Else MsgBox "no"
End Sub

Open in new window
