Hello Experts,

I know how to copy and paste Macro code, but that's about it.  :) But I think this would be easy for someone to code.

If cell O16, changes it's value, then clear the contents of cell O17.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Right-click on the sheet tab name and select view code and paste this code
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("o16")) Is Nothing Then
If Range("o16") <> "" Then Range("o17").ClearContents
End If
End Sub

Open in new window

This will not delete o17 if you delete o16. If you want to do that then delete the phrase

"If Range("o16") <> "" Then"

@ ssaqibh,

When I go into the coding area, what section do I paste your code into?

@ ssaqibh,

It's having a problem with the code...

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("N30")) Is Nothing Then
If Range("N30") <> "" Then Range("N31").ClearContents
End If
End Sub

I am using merged cells.  Here's a screenshot.

@ ssaqibh,

Actually, I just emailed it to you - in relation to the other Q you're helping me on.  (Both questions are involving the same workbook)
