    Macro to change number to number in another cell

    Hi there,

    I'm trying to keep track of my monthly expenses and trying to make a more easier way to deal with it.

    The cost of the items go down Column B.

    From Column C to Column N I have the months.

    Is there a macro that if I enter "1" into the cell, the cost amount in Column B automatically appears?

    Attach a sample workbook. Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Thanks,

    I've attached an example file.

    The unit cost is in Column B as mentioned.

    From Column C across to Column N, I want to enter a number (i.e. "1", "2", "3", etc) and this number will then multiply by the unit cost on the same row:

    Row 4:
    Exp1 has a unit cost of $5.00.
    I enter the number "1" in the January column, result is 1X$5.00 = $5.00
    I enter the number "2" in the January column, result is 2X$5.00 = $10.00
    I enter the number "3" in the January column, result is 3X$5.00 = $15.00

    I would like a macro to do these sums, so all I need to do is type "1", "2", "3", etc into the cell, the macro will then calculate the multiplication and automatically change the number:

    "1" will automatically change to $5.00
    "2" will automatically change to $10.00
    "3" will automatically change to $15.00

    Hopefully this makes sense and hopefully this is possible to do. I know I can do a normal formula like "=SUM(1X5.00)" and have the cells formatted to currency, but I would prefer to simplify the process with a macro if possible.

    Sorry, if not already obvious, I didn't edit the example:

    I enter the number "1" in the January column, result is 1X$5.00 = $5.00
    I enter the number "2" in the September column, result is 2X$5.00 = $10.00
    I enter the number "3" in the December column, result is 3X$5.00 = $15.00

    That now makes sense.

    It is also quite easy.

    Right Click on your sheet name at the bottom of excel and select view code.

    Paste this code in the window that opens and close the window.
