Hi gurus

The attached file has macros (thanks to google)  to stamp the date in Column L when a number is entered in column C. However, after the number is entered, a second click in the same cell in column C is required to stamp the date.
The sheet also have a second macro to hide a row when ''Completed'' status is entered in the Final status column(Column AA)  
My problem is, when I select an entire row, the sheet will fall in to calculation mode and I have to interrupt it by debugging or ending the action. The end result is, the date stamp is copied across into numerous cells in the same row. (You can see this in the attached file)
If I need to unhide a hidden row to see the contents, as it often happens, I have to select the rows before and after the hidden row and it initiates the calculation mode and the whole data will be corrupted.

Requesting your advice on
1) Auto stamping of date in column L  without the need of a second click.
2) Stop the auto copying of date stamp when a row is selected.
Your thoughts please
