I'm trying to figure out how to add additional data from different columns. I currently have just column A being displayed. So I'm trying to concatenate additional information from other columns. Along with Column A, I would like to have Column C (Text String) and Column F (Number). I'm retrieving my data from worksheet "Detail" and my code is being run on sheet "Project-Calendar New".  Here is my vba code.


Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal target As Range)
If Intersect(target, Range("A1:X400")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub

If target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub

Dim DataSheet As Range
Dim TargetFound As Range
Dim xRow As Integer
Dim MessageString
Dim exampleDate As Date

Dim target1 As Range
Set target1 = Range("B7:H400")

'This is where my data is coming from?
Set DataSheet = Worksheets("Detail").Range("A2:X400")
Set TargetFound = DataSheet.Find(ActiveCell.Value)

If Not TargetFound Is Nothing Then
xRow = TargetFound.Row

Set DataSheet1 = Worksheets("Detail").Range("A2:A1400")
Set TargetFound1 = DataSheet1.Find(ActiveCell.Value)
If TargetFound1 Is Nothing Then
      
   Exit Sub

* There is a Concatenate() function.
* You can write a formula using the ampersand (&) concatenation operator
* I created a Better Concatenate Function and describe it in this article:

*  You can do the concatenation in your routine and assign a new .Value property to some cell.

It took a while to look at your project and implement but I figured it. Thanks again.
