Hello Experts,

I am using some VBA code, but it doesn't appear to be working/running? (I have no idea how to verify its even executing)

Here is the code...

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    With Target
        If .Address = "pmDimensions" Then
            Range("pmSeal").Value = ""
        End If
    End With
End Sub

Open in new window


pmDimensions consists of 3 cells.   Basically, if any value changes, then I want to clear the contents of pmSeal.

Any ideas what is wrong with the code above?

You have to turn off events for the code to behave well:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    With Target
        If .Address = "pmDimensions" Then
            Range("pmSeal").Value = ""
        End If
    End With
    Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

Also, the Address property is not the same as the range name.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    If Not Intersect(Target, Range("pmDimensions")) Is Nothing Then
        Range("pmSeal").Value = ""
    End If
    Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub
