I am running a worksheet change event where if the selection from a data validation drop down list is changed then the cell immediately to the left is cleared.  I have it working just fine for cell C10 but i want it to apply to 4 non contiguous ranges and not just that single cell
C10:C17, C26:C33; C49:C56; C66:73
Probably something simple such as is target in this range.....cant get it right

My code is below:


Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "$C$10" Then
    With Application
        .EnableEvents = False
        .ScreenUpdating = False
        .Calculation = xlCalculationManual
    End With

    ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).ClearContents

    With Application
        .EnableEvents = True
        .ScreenUpdating = True
        .Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
    End With
End If
End Sub

Change this line-->

If Target.Address = "$C$10" Then

Open in new window


To this-->

If Intersect(Target, Me.Range("C10:C17,C26:C33, C49:C56, C66:C73")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub

Open in new window


And remove the last End if...You wont need it anymore..

Also one small observation you might want to change this line as well-->

ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).ClearContents

Open in new window


To this-->

Target.Offset(0, 1).ClearContents

Open in new window


Since once you made changes the active cell will be the cell below it when macro is trigged not the same cell where you made changes...

Thank you Saurabh both for the fix and the advice re the Offset line later in the module.  I have tested it and everything works great.
