    Macro to confirm that a drop down selection has been made

    Hi,
    We have a user form in processing sales orders, consisting of 4 drop down lists to categorise the sale.
    Sometimes a list selection is inadvertently missed, and the previous order's selection
    remains, leading to errors in the processing.
    I would like to create a fail safe system, whereby the user is warned that a selection has not been made, for example, by an adjacent cell displaying a message "input required", and the message changes to "" (that is, a blank cell), once a selection has been made.
    How could I make an If statement for the adjacent cell, based on a selection being made from the drop down list ?

    To best describe or illustrate your problem you would be better off attaching a dummy workbook, the workbook should contain the same structure and some dummy data of the same type as the type you have in your real workbook - so, if a cell contains numbers & letters in this format abc-123 then that should be reflected in the dummy workbook.

    If needed supply a before and after sheet in the workbook so the person helping you can see what you are trying to achieve.

    Doing this will ensure you get the result you need!
    Hope that helps.
