Folks,
In cell O2 I enter this formula =TODAY() and press <Enter> and then I want to go to Range("L3"). I've tried =if range("O2")<>"" then Range ("L3") but I do not know if it is correct or where to place the code?

This code will move the cursor from O2 to L3 after O2 is changed.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If ActiveCell.Row = 2 And ActiveCell.Column = 15 Then Range("L3").Select

End Sub

To implement, right click on the sheet tab and select view code, copy and paste the above into the right hand side of the VB Editor.

Thanks

Looking at the bigger picture, what are you trying to achieve? A similar result is possible without VBA.

If the sheet is protected, O2 is unlocked and L3 is the next available unlocked cell and move on enter is activated, the cursor will go to the next available cell.

Thanks

Use

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = Range("o2").Address Then
If Target <> "" Then Range("L3").Select
End If

End Sub

Rob,
whoops! the second alternative worked fine. I forgot I had one cell left unprotected.I still would like a "shooting soultion" in VBA though. I tried your and that did not work, for me.

Hi, Rob, you should have used target instead of activecell.

thanks for the follow up. The part of Rob's answer I accepted was "If the sheet is protected, O2 is unlocked and L3 is the next available unlocked cell and move on enter is activated, the cursor will go to the next available cell."
I found a cell that was left unlocked when it should not have been and once I corrected that problem Rob's suggestion worked. However, the code was needed also.
Great job folks!
