    Question Storage and Expiration Date Macro Troubles

    I need to insert a date in the Storage Date column whenever something is added to the Contents List column. Then, the Expiration Date column needs to have the current date plus 60 days. I'm running the following macro in it, but it is not working. Strange part is, I have used this exact same code in other workbooks, and it has worked. Am I not saving it properly? Is there some setting that is not correct? I have attached the workbook to this post. It is also saved as a macro enabled workbook.

    I have noticed that when i click "run", the Worksheet_Change name does not show up in the menu. Is this because it is private? Is Excel not seeing it?

    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

    If Not Intersect(Target, Range("D2:D61")) Is Nothing Then

    Target.Offset(0, 1) = Now()
    Target.Offset(0, 2) = Now() + 60

    End If



    End Sub


    Thank you for your help!

    You had the correct name. Yet, it needed to be atached to the worksheet differently. I did that and it works...

    The macro code is located in the wrong place. It should go in the worksheet's code module and not a standard code module (not Module1)

    Copy your macro code
    Right-click on the Sheet1 worksheet tab
    Select View Code from the pop-up context menu
    Paste the code there in the worksheet's code module.

    Thank you for the help and clarification!

    Does anyone know why the Macro Name area is blank, even though I have a macro? Is that menu for things that go in Module1 and not what I'm trying to do? I attached a screenshot for reference. Empty_Macro_Name.jpg

    The Private keyword prevents the macro from showing in the macro list.
