Hi Omar,

Aikimark provided you a SOLUTION HERE which inputs the difference between today's date and the date in col. B automatically in column I once you select a date from the calendar in col. B.
Isn't it working as expected or what else you are trying to achieve?
Would be better if you just give some sample dates in col. B and your desired output in col. I.

This is a different question than the one you asked after you accepted my comment as the solution in the prior question.

What is wrong with putting a formula in that column to display the day difference?

Neeraj and aikimark the solution for the other question is on point, but if the days pass on to the next day the actual file stays the same. What i want this file/code to do is "I" and "J" will update its information when the actual date moves closer to the date input from column "B".

FOR EXAMPLE

*** Column ("B" if day is 10/7)  = ("I" #7) and ("J" being greater than 5 days will be only 5 Q)

From actual date moving from 9/30 now it moved to 10/1

***Column should now be on ("I" #6) and ("J" being greater than 5 days will be only Q)

From actual date moving from 10/1 now it moved to 10/2

***Column should now be on ("I" #5) and ("J" being greater or equal to 5 days will be only 5 Q)

From actual date moving from 10/2 now it moved to 10/3

***Column should now be on ("I" #4) and ("J" being less than 5 days will look for the number and display the same number of Q = to I, this will be = to (4 Q)

That is what formulas are for. they can refresh, based on conditions and are usually calculated when the workbook opens.  The number of "Q" characters will be a result of the REPEAT() function.

Because you insisted that the VBA code place values into the two columns.  I tried to sway you to place formulas there.

I understand your point aikimark, Hey friend if there is no way of getting it to work the way i intentionally wanted. I would understand if you told me that it cannot be possible...

Ok. now that i understand that it cannot be possible may we try a different approach, as the one that you have suggested, would deeply appreciate it akimark.

Hi Omar,

In the CODE suggested by Aikimark, change the line#27
Cells(Target.Row, 9).Value = eval

Open in new window


WITH THIS
Cells(Target.Row, 9).Formula = "=B" & Target.Row & "-Today()"

Open in new window

See if that resolves your issue.

Formula for I34:
=IF(isvaliddate(B34),MAX(B34-TODAY(),0),"")

Open in new window

The formula for J34 will be something like this:
=IF(I34="","",REPT("Q",MIN(5,I34)))

Open in new window

The IsValidDate function I added:
Function IsValidDate(ByVal parmValue) As Boolean
    IsValidDate = IsDate(parmValue)
End Function

Open in new window

Hey Akimark i have done the update you have suggested but on column "J" nothing moves. should i erase the following information or keep it

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    Dim eval As Long
    Dim colors As Variant
    colors = Array(0, -16776961, 26367, 26367, 26367, -65536)
    If Target.Column = 2 Then
        If Cells(Target.Row, 2).Value = Empty Then
            Cells(Target.Row, 10).Value = ""
            Exit Sub
        End If
        If IsDate(Cells(Target.Row, 2).Value) Then
            eval = Cells(Target.Row, 2).Value - Date
            Select Case eval
                Case 0
                    Cells(Target.Row, 10).Value = ""
                Case 1 To 4
                    Cells(Target.Row, 10).Value = String(eval, "Q")
                    Cells(Target.Row, 10).Font.Color = colors(eval)
                Case Is > 4
                    Cells(Target.Row, 10).Value = String(5, "Q")
                    Cells(Target.Row, 10).Font.Color = colors(5)
            End Select
            With Cells(Target.Row, 10).Font
                .name = "Snap ITC"
                .FontStyle = "Bold"
                .Size = 8
            End With
            Cells(Target.Row, 9).Formula = "=B" & Target.Row & "-Today()"

        End If
    End If

End Sub

@aikimark
I assume no function is required here to validate a date entry in column B as dates are inserted into column B with calendar pop up triggered by selection event.
