In the code offered by xtermie, Tty to replace the following line...
Select Case UCase(Cells(ActiveCell.Row, "H"))

WITH THIS to see if that works as I guess there might be some spaces in the end.
Select Case UCase(LEFT(Cells(ActiveCell.Row, "H"),1))

Omar!
As per the code, the code will only work for the Active Cell's Row and it will replace the content of column H in that particular row only.
Try selecting any cell on Row32 and see if J32 gets changed as per the code.

I misread the code.
The code works on column H not on column J.
If you select a cell in Row86 and while H86 is 1, the code will change it's content to "Second P" as per the code.
Isn't it what you trying to achieve?

Hey there Neeraj, no luck. If you click on the button shown on the pic on top, it works with no prob, but when it has to do with changing the one letter or number to a whole word it gives me an inconvenience. ***The actual code works with any row

Sorry not getting you here.
Won't it be better if you list your steps when the code doesn't work for you?

Hello there Neeraj, thanks again for your help, on my way creating a video i tried to add an additional letter to the code it worked, then i tried to keep all of them with ether one style capital letter or small letter and it worked. The code that was this.

Sub RectangleBeveled6_Click()
 Select Case UCase(Cells(ActiveCell.Row, "H"))
     Case ""
         Cells(ActiveCell.Row, "H") = "FIRST P"
     Case "FIRST P"
         Cells(ActiveCell.Row, "H") = "SECOND P"
     Case "SECOND P"
         Cells(ActiveCell.Row, "H") = "LAST P"
     Case "LAST P"
         Cells(ActiveCell.Row, "H") = "ZDONE"
     Case "ZDONE"
         Cells(ActiveCell.Row, "H") = ""
 End Select

 End Sub
