    Stop Today Date Function From Updating When Coping Text

    Hello all

    Kindly help me in below code.

    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    The code function is: when entering text in column H; automatically the cell in column E is filled with today date.
    It is ok till now

    But when

    I return to old data for old dates
    For example, the date in Cell E is 01/01/2016
    When I try to copy the text from cell H the date automatically returns to today date (18/03/2016) in Cell E and that is what I donít want.

    I want the date to return to today date only if I add new text or delete some words form that text.

    And when coping entered text, I need the today date to be the same without any change or update.

    Hope it is clear

    Re: Stop Today Date Function From Updating When Coping Text

    I tried the code again and it is ok for me..If I copied any cell and pasted it on column H the change of the date doesn't fired

    You may double clicked in the cell you need to copy ..this will fire the change

    Re: Stop Today Date Function From Updating When Coping Text

    Sorry maybe there is misunderstanding

    maybe it is my weak language

    I mean to copy from H cell not to H

    I will give example:

    Yesterday I entered new text in column H
    and automatically the today date appears in column E which is 18 Mar

    today I enter new data

    later on I need to copy yesterday text from column H to use it in another file.
    the problem when I copy from H; the date in column E changed from yesterday date which is 18 Mar to be today date which is 19 Mar (which I don't want)

    Re: Stop Today Date Function From Updating When Coping Text

    It is supposed not to trigger the change if you copy FROM column H .. That's weird
    Waiting for experts' reply in this issue

    Hello nilem

    Normally I use the mouse to copy form H, but I am not the only user for this file; it means other users may use Ctrl+C
