Hello All,

I am looking for a worksheet change event:

Requirements:
1.      For columns C and F, users cannot enter negative numbers
2.      If users enter negative, target.value becomes 0 and prompts users with message
3.      If user either enter numbers for C or F, the column H of that row will get TRUE for the update.

thanks

You could apply Validation rules to only allow positive numbers in a range.
This will have it's own message box.

This is in Data > Validatation > Allow > Decimal > Above > 0

See attached.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    If Target.Count = 1 And Not Intersect(Target, Range("C4:C9,F4:F9")) Is Nothing Then
        If Target.Value < 0 Then
            Target.Value = 0
