Hello Experts,

I am currently using this code (in a module),...

Sub ClearMeasuringUp()
    If MsgBox("You are about to clear the entire worksheet - Are you sure you want to proceed?", vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
        ActiveSheet.Range("B28:D28,F28:H28,J28:L28,P28").ClearContents
        ActiveSheet.Cells(27, 14).Value = "Diameter"
        Application.Goto Reference:="Diameter"
        Selection.ClearContents
    End If
End Sub

Open in new window


I would also like to run this code,...

ActiveSheet.Cells(27, 14).Value = "Diameter"

Open in new window


When the workbook is opened.

Thank you in advance for your help!

@ ssaqibh,

Thank you for the piece of code (The points are already yours).  But as I was just about to place the code in, I realized I have a problem.  The code I though I could reuse, I don't think I can.

When this code is run, via the user running the code - it's fine. Cause they are running the code specific to that page.

ActiveSheet.Cells(27, 14).Value = "Diameter",

I also want that code to run on open, but I realized it only calls the "ActiveSheet", and technically it's going to run on the active sheet.

So I guess my code needs to be revised further to fix this?  The name of the page is called "Measuring Up".  Idk, if the new code would need to know that.

I hope I didn't confuse things further. I just barely grasp this!  :)

Except that the active sheet may not be the one you want so

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

' Sheet1 should be change to the name of your sheet
Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(27, 14).Value = "Diameter"

End Sub

Open in new window


is probably better better.

@ssaqibh: Was there any reason why my answer in post ID 38797727 didn't get at least partial credit?

The only reason I can think of is that you did not use the sheet reference requested by Geekamo....otherwise it was just fine.

@ MartinLiss,

When I came back to this thread, I saw both answers.  I basically picked the one I was more comfortable with which was "ssaqibh" answer because it references ("N27") instead of (27, 14).  I know my answer did include, (27, 14) - but anytime I can see the cell itself in the code - the easier it is for me to read through it and understand what's going on.

Now, none of that even matters because you are correct.  Had I given this post more thought when I was selecting where the points were going - I should have selected yours, or at the very least divided the points between you both.

@ All

I am willing to make the request for all points be given to MartinLiss, or at least have the points divided evenly between you both. If either of you don't mind, please respond with who should get the points, or how they should be divided up.

Thanks!
