    Set Default Value of a cell and allow user changes to be made

    Hi guys,



    I'm trying to set-up a cell that will have a default value based on the contents of another cell, e.g.

    If Cell A1 = "Call 1" Then
    Celll A2 = "3.2"

    If Cell A1 = "Call 2" Then
    Cell A2 = "5.5"

    However I also want Cell A2 to be able to have user input so that the figure can be changed if necessary - and then when the user selects the relevant Option in Cell A1 again, Cell A2 resets back to the relevant default value.

    Hope somebody can help

    • Right-click on the sheet tab
    • Select View Code from the pop-up context menu
    • Paste the code below in the VBA edit window.

    Can't change the name of an event macro. The macro has to be called exactly this...
    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    ...and it has to be located in the worksheet's code module.
