    Make a static date appear when a cell has text entered

    Hi, i am trying to find a way where is a list of cells (b3:b113) has text entered, or specific text entered, it will enter a static cell in the corresponding "d" column.

    I know of CTRL + ; but i don't really know how to get it to work as a macro, can't find a forumla that enters the static date, and i don't want to make a macro to copy + paste special the date when it happens.

    So all i should have to do is entered text in column b, then it will add a time stamp, when that text was entered, it doesn't have to update.

    Anyone have any easy VBA code to do this, or is there a forumla for this?

    Like all i need is this, but instead of the "now()" function, it will have another function that doesn't automatically update?

    =IF(ISBLANK(E5)=FALSE,NOW(),"")

    Thanks in advance guys!

    Hi.Welcome to the forum.

    You need time stamp for this and you can also use formulas or VBA. Take a look to this.
