Hello All,

Why doesn't this stop in cell A15?
Any help appreciated!

Thanks.
Sub StopatFifteen()
Dim aktKolli As Long
Dim kolliAntal As Long

kolliAntal = 15
aktKolli = 0

Do While aktKolli < kolliAntal
    
    For Each cell In ActiveSheet.Range("A1:A50")
        aktKolli = aktKolli + 1
        cell.Value = aktKolli
    Next cell
Loop
    
End Sub

Why doesn't it stop?
Because your loop condition is outside your For loop, so the for loop does all 50 cells before checking for the next value.

Maybe what you want is something more like this?

    For Each cell In ActiveSheet.Range("A1:A50")
        aktKolli = aktKolli + 1
      If aktKolli <= kolliAntal Then
           cell.Value = aktKolli
      Else
         Exit For
      End If
    Next cell
